"A good fashion photography must seem anything but not a fashion photograph: a portrait, a souvenir photo, one of the paparazzi ..."
Helmut Newton was one of the top fashion photographers of the twentieth century. He created a new style in his photographs, which are full of glamor and seduction, dominated by high heels.
Newton bought his first camera with his savings when he was 12. He was the author of the covers of prestigious magazines around the world. They are famous photos of beautiful women in luxurious surroundings where some of them have become an iconic image. Actually, Newton has been a lover of beauty, almost obsessively with his camera could capture the beauty like no other.
Till July 30 at the Grand Palais in Paris will be hosted the first retrospective of Helmut Newton. It presents 200 photographs selected by his wife, June Brown, and it is projected a documentary filmed by June in answering if she ever felt jealous of her husband's work.
