Exhibition celebrates Helmut Newton's 50-year career through a rare and unseen collection of vintage prints
Winnie on Deck (Cruising from behind).

LONDON.- This remarkable, rare collection of thirteen framed, vintage silver gelatin prints are from the archives, considered Newton’s best work, and are now on show together for the first time at Box Galleries, London.

Celebrating fashion, style, and sexuality, this special exhibition depicts the legend’s work from 1967 – 1984 and includes previously unseen work. Famed for his erotically charged, black and white photos that featured regularly in Vogue, Newton’s photographs portray fearless, liberated female power and inner strength.

Helmut Newton was one of the most prolific photographers of the 20th century, chanelling the sensuality and erotic power of his subjects with panache, precision, and impact. He established a new way of photographing fashion and glamour which often attracted controversy.

As a friend of Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld, Newton was at the forefront of a new wave of designers and photographers to try and change male-female dynamics in the fashion industry, while creating a new vision of femininity in the mainstream media.

The Berliner, who made Paris his home, loved shooting his work outside at night rather in the studio and it was these iconic, nocturnal pictures which rocked the fashion world. Newton considered himself as a feminist and viewed his photographs as triumphant; depicting dominant women, completely in control and all powerful, exploring themes of sensuality and eroticism. Newton was guided by a passion for the strength and allure of the female form and an unquenchable taste for the risqué.

A luminary and master-of-photography, Newton photographed Jerry Hall to David Bowie, Karl Lagerfleld to Jacqueline Onassis but also favoured unknown models. Photographed in striking, provocative poses with stark contrasts of light and shadow. This ‘must see’ exhibition takes the viewer on a voyeuristic journey through the ’70’s and ‘80’s and presents a rare insight into the world’s most famous photographer.
