America 1970s 80s

Share:

The exhibition ‘America 1970s/80s’ opens at the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin on October 8, 2020. The showcase comprises works by Evelyn Hofer, Sheila Metzner,  Joel Meyerowitz and Helmut Newton. In the 1970s, much of Newton’s nude and fashion work was shot in New York, Las Vegas, Miami and Los Angeles. After 1980, he also began to capture portraits of the ‘famous and infamous’ in and around Hollywood.

During roughly the same time period, Joel Meyerowitz was building a collection of portraits captured in Provincetown, Massachusetts: in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the New-York-based photographer spent every summer in the former fishing village – portraying the free spirits who had taken to congregating in this liberal community on the American East Coast.

American photographer Sheila Metzner was a close friend of Helmut and June Newton. The previously unpublished photos they took of each other in the South of France are a testament to this special connection.

The exhibition also includes 30 images by Evelyn Hofer, captured in New York during the 1960s and 70s. The selection, which will be displayed in ‘June’s Room’, features street scenes, panoramas, portraits and interiors – culminating in a very personal portrait of the city.
