The definitive overview of the photography of Helmut Newton, including hitherto unpublished images.
Helmut Newton is considered to be one of the most important photographers of the twentieth century. Well known for his fashion photography, but also his nude and portrait work, Newton is enjoying somewhat of a renaissance, especially with a renewed interest in early color and analogue photograph.
Published in time to coincide with an exhibition at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco in the summer of 2020, a city in which Newton lived with his wife Alice Springs, the book focuses on the topics of (beautiful) people, fashion in Monaco, and a general section on his nudes, his glamour photography, as well as his landscape work. This book contains seven essays by a range of experts in the field of photography, film, and art and three interviews including one with Paloma Picasso, thus making it the most comprehensive book on Newton to date.
Produced in collaboration with the French publisher, Gallimard, the title will be handsomely produced with a paper change differentiating between images and the text, and a wibaline hardcover containing extra features.
