"What I find interesting is working in a society with certain taboos - and fashion photography is about that kind of society. To have taboos, then to get around them - that's interesting." Helmut Newton
Helmut Newton (born Helmut Neustädter, 31 October 1920 - 23 January 2004) was a German-Australian photographer. He was a prolific, widely imitated photographer whose provocative, erotically charged black and white photographs made of him a Master. Among his thousands photographs, I choosed to exhibit all his facets in artistic nudes : indoors, "domestic", outdoors, studios, celebrities. He surprised me and I hope he'll surprise you too.
To end and let you admire, after a long investigation through my 110 interviews, Helmut Newton is the first inspirator for a lot of photographers, members of this Collective Magazine, and maybe the trigger of their passion.
