A retrospective of the great photographer's work.
Helmut Newton (1920-2004) had his own unique way of photographing the beauty, sensuality, humour and violence he saw underlying the behaviour of people in the world of fashion, luxury, money and power.
This retrospective covers the core aspects of his provocative and often shocking oeuvre, which include fashion, nudes, portraits, sex and humour. Newton’s classic photography transcends fashion and marks him out as an artist who, brushing aside the limitations imposed by his medium, experimented with subjects and genres; he expanded the scope of contemporary visual culture with his singular vision.
