Helmut Newton (1920-2004) was one of the most influential photographers of all time. He first achieved international fame in the 1970s while working principally for French Vogue, where he became celebrated for his controversial scenarios. Most striking was his ability to make a throughly planned photograph seem fresh and dynamic. His many titles and awards included Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
"Newton's World Without Men is filled to the brim with fashion
photography that is sometimes lush, always thought provoking and
occasionally risque. It is a bounty for the eyes." * Photo District
"Hasn't just about everyone tried to copy Newton, but only the 'master' himself managed to handle sex and elegance in such a casual, yet cool and calculated way." * Stern *
