Helmut Newton. Polaroids.
Instant Newton: a collection of Helmut Newton's test Polaroids.
Late photographer Helmut Newton’s unerring skill at capturing the erotic allure of strong, striking women was legendary. This is a compelling collection of his test Polaroids, taken to prepare for his formal shoots, and, with their candid spontaneity, offer a fascinating insight into the photographer’s art.
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 was celebrated for his controversial scenarios and the ability to make a thoroughly planned photograph seem fresh and dynamic. His many titles and awards include Commandeur dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
