Top shots from Helmut Newton

Helmut Newton (1920–2004) is remembered as one of the most prolific photographers of the 20th century, channeling the sensuality and erotic power of his subjects with panache, precision, and impact. His aesthetic was uniquely his, while at the same time establishing a new way of photographing fashion and glamour.

Joining TASCHEN’s illustrious collection of Helmut Newton titles, including Helmut Newton: Polaroids, Pages from the Glossies, and the spectacular Helmut Newton: SUMO, this fresh edition of Helmut Newton: Work spans an impressive stretch of Newton’s career, including some of his most striking shots from the ’60s through to his golden heyday. From shadowy street to hotel boudoir, it’s a collection that showcases Newton’s suggestive storytelling throughout his fashion, editorial, or personal pictures.
The photographer

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 became celebrated for his controversial scenarios. Most striking was his ability to make a throughly planned photograph seem fresh and dynamic. His many titles and awards included Commandeur dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.

A must have

“Work” is a striking introduction to the self-proclaimed “professional voyeur” Helmut Newton. The book excels on displaying Newton's fashion universe, where elegance is bonded with boudoir and eroticism.

Monographic collection of Helmut Newton's photographs. The book is divided by type of shots. The quality of the images is beautiful.

Great book

Helmut Newton needs not be introduced - I religiously purchase his books as I love going through them. Taschen releases are of high quality & look great.
