The Controversial Work of Helmut Newton

13 Apr

Some chilling moments of ambiguity of Helmut Newton‘s world. The Berlin-born, Australian photographer made his name in the ’60’s and ’70’s Vogue. His interest in the the female form (in it’s natural, candid state), though elegant, was often viewed as offensive.

 

 

Catch an exhibition at Grand Palais, described as ““Provocative, sometimes shocking, Newton’s work tried to capture the beauty, eroticism, humor—and sometimes violence—that he sensed in the social interaction within the familiar worlds of fashion, luxury, money and power.” Available until June 2012.
