Helmut Newton. Polaroids


Instant Newton

A collection of Helmut Newton’s test Polaroids

Polaroids occupy a special place in the hearts of many photo enthusiasts who remember a time when “instant photography” meant one-of-a-kind prints that developed within minutes of clicking the shutter. What was once a crucial tool for photographers to test their shots before shooting on film has now become obsolete in the face of digital photography.

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.

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.

Man sollte die Polaroid-Sammlung nicht unterschätzen, hier findet sich eine Vielzahl Hochkaräter aus der Modewelt wieder.

Es ist anders

Oliver,2 novembre 2021
Es ist anders als das berühmte Werk Sumo aus dem gleichen Verlag. Insofern sollte man ganz neu an das Buch heran gehen. Keine großformatigen Schwarzweiß-Aufnahmen, sondern eben Polaroids, oft nehmen diese nur einen Bruchteil einer Seite ein. Es überwältigt nicht mit dem Format, es lockt eher mit der Liebe zum Detail. Auch deswegen eine hervorragende Ergänzung zu den anderen Werken von Helmut Newton.

Newton @home

Bei TASCHEN ist Newton zu Hause. Und das ist auch gut so. Wie immer herausragende Qualität!

L'importanza delle polaroid in fotografia.

MaY,6 novembre 2021
Newton è uno dei fotografi che ha sempre ritenuto importante scattare delle polaroid "preparatorie" alle sue foto. A mio avviso è molto interessante vedere e studiare le sue polaroid.

See how he prepared his works

Manuel Ángel,30 ottobre 2021
Before digital, polaroids helped photographers to see how their arrangements fit within the photographic frame. This book helps seeing how Newton prepared many of his famous works.
