Helmut Newton Retrospective

Share:

From June 17 to September 4, 2016, the FOAM photographic museum in Amsterdam is presenting an exhibition of works by Helmut Newton, a homage to the photographer who passed away in 2004, which encompasses the whole range of his complex and diverse creativity. In close collaboration with the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin, 200 well-known and lesser-known pieces by the Australian photographer with German roots will be on display.  

Throughout his career, Newton photographed many big and small personalities from the worlds of art and politics. Whether David Bowie, Wim Wenders or Gerhard Schröder – his portraits are considered status symbols and a symbolic proof of success. Newton first became know, however, for his powerful female figures. By staging long-legged models in high heels, scantily dressed or even naked, and in dominant positions, he combined self-confident eroticism with the women’s emancipation movement of the seventies and eighties. His professional breakthrough came at that time with pictures taken for the likes of French Vogue. Among others, he worked together with fashion designers Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld, who were also making efforts to create a new, more contemporary image for women.
