"…TASCHEN surfe sur la tendance et édite un livre des plus beaux polaroids étalés sur plusieurs décennies d’un grand nom de la photographie de mode, Helmut Newton. La publication est un hommage au rendu instantané du polaroid et rappelle sa fonction première, visualiser la composition d’une photo. Cela peut paraître un peu obsolète aujourd’hui avec le numérique…Pourtant nombreux amoureux de photo et de Newton (comme moi) se réjouiront de feuilleter cet ouvrage riche en prises de vue mythique. Grâce au style intemporel du polaroid, ces photos, capturées et publiées dans les plus grands magazines de mode du monde entier, sont toujours à la page. Alors «polaroidez» maintenant. C’est tendance…"— TheJulianeChicList.wordpress.com
"Corpo em Polaroid. Se nao as vire m vivo tem sempre o catálogo que TASCHEN acaba de lançar."— Vogue, Lisbon, Portugal
"Diese Sammlung, zusammengestellt von June Newton, fängt den Zauber von Helmut Newtons Photoshootings ein, wie nur Polaroids es können."— dgph.de, Köln, Germany
"Though Newton himself has passed on, luckily many of his test Polaroids have been preserved and are now seeing the light of day for the first time. In Helmut Newton: Polaroids, TASCHEN and the artist’s widow, June Newton, give captive viewers a chance to see test shots from some of his most influential works, providing a new and alternative view. A picture maybe worth a thousand words, but rarities such as these are priceless."— V Magazine, New York, United States
"German photographer Helmut Newton took hundreds of Polaroid pictures throughout his lifetime—his wife, June Newton, called his coming home with a stack of the day’s images "like Othello coming home with the spoils of war." June remembers her late husband and his fondness for the low-fi art form; Newton’s Polaroid canon will go on display in Berlin this summer in conjunction with the release of TASCHEN’s photo book of his work."— VanityFair.com
"Polaroids were once a crucial tool for photographers to test their shots before shooting on film. These were often discarded, but Newton saved his and this book is a rare chance to see the set-up shots from some of his greatest shoots […] this collection captures the magic of the photographer’s shoots as only Polaroids can."— Photography Monthly, London, United Kingdom
"Seeing this selection of Helmut Newton’s Polaroids gives us yet another reason to mourn the demise of film photography. Taken as test shots during fashion magazine shoots in the Seventies, Eighties and Nineties, the legendary German photographer’s snaps have been collated by his widow June into a fine book for TASCHEN. Newton once complained that he’d "photographed too many naked women" – an enviable predicament if there ever was one."— Esquire, United Kingdom
"La editorial TASCHEN acaba de publicar un volumen –y casi un diccionario de fotografía Polaroid – con 300 instantáneas que el artista realizó a modo de boceto conceptual para sus grandes encargos. El encanto, al fin y al cabo, de la técnica de visionado instantáneo. Las fotografías han sido donadas por June Newton, viuda del fotógrafo, ya que, tal y como ella explica en el prólogo del libro, son para verlo mejor, como el lobo a caperucita roja. Y es que la obra de Newton no solo permite ver por el ojo de la cerradura por el cual él observaba, sino que nos introduce en su particular visión de la mujer, el sexo y la alta sociedad."— ABC, Madrid, Spain
"Helmut Newton, Polaroids allows readers to go behind the scenes of iconic photo shoots as well as gain a rare insight into the creative direction and processes of a prolific lensman. While some of Newton’s Polaroids have sold for up to $50000, many still remain with his widow June Newton who pieced together the Polaroid collection for the book. Helmut Newton’s photos have been immortalized in many ways yet this publication gives both fashion and photography lovers a new way of experiencing the work of the celebrated photographer."— Theblock-mag.com
"Luckily for us, legendary photographer Helmut Newton saved his test Polaroids, allowing a privileged and rare chance to see the tests from a selection of his greatest shoots over a period of decades, including many from the TASCHEN titles SUMO, A Gun for Hire, and Work. Selected by his widow, June Newton, from over 300 photos featured at the 2011 exhibition "Helmut Newton Polaroids" at the Museum für Fotografie in Berlin, this collection captures the magic of Helmut Newton photo shoots as only Polaroids can."— Fashioncopious.com
