A master of eroticism’s dark potential, Helmut Newton redefined fashion photography in the 1950s and 60s–and perhaps even modern sexuality. Newton’s influence has grown to be monumental in scope and impact. Photographing for magazines like Playboy and Vogue, Newton was provocative, to say the least, in his portrayals of stylized erotic scenes, often featuring sado-maschostic undertones.
This new monograph of Newton’s work showcases the landmark photographs that were a product of a close collaboration between Newton and stern magazine. Spanning 27 years and featuring photographs that have never before been reproduced in book format, this book reflects Newton’s diverse talent and exuberant spirit.
