Helmut Newton. Sex & Landscapes

Hardcover, 9.6 x 12.8 in., 2.81 lb, 112 pages
Photographer Helmut Newton is famous for his own distinct brand of glamour. This tantalizing publication juxtaposes his nude female portraits with a portfolio of landscapes: aerial views, travel snaps, and serene lakesides. In combination, these seemingly disparate genres expand our understanding of an artist whose work has always challenged the borders of fashion photography.

Danger and Decadence

Nude female portraits and landscapes
The collection Sex & Landscapes brings together a rich selection from Helmut Newton’s little-known landscape and travel photographs, as well as unseen “tougher” sex pictures, described by Philippe Garner of de Pury & Luxembourg as “Helmut’s world of dark, brooding seas, baroque statuary, crashing waves, a long desert highway under threatening skies, a Berlin park at dusk, enigmatic apartment buildings at night, the Rhine seen from the air, the shadows of airplanes, all this interwoven with hard and voyeuristic sexual imagery, plus a touch of his high style and glamour.”
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 de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.

Philippe Garner is an expert in 20th-century photography, design, and decorative art. He has written numerous essays and books, from studies of the lives of designer Émile Gallé and photographers Cecil Beaton and John Cowan, to his Sixties Design for TASCHEN.
