The world of Helmut Newton is extremely complex and diverse. Considered shocking and provocative back in the 60s, by the climax of his career he enjoyed the reputation of a photographer who was able to imagine and visualize his subjects as women who take the lead rather than follow it; women who enjoy the resplendence and vitality of their bodies; women who are both responsible and willing. This book presents a whole spectrum of Newton’s work and celebrates the long career of this outstanding and prolific 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, and became celebrated for his controversial scenarios, bold lighting, and striking compositions in street or interior settings, rather than studios. His many titles and awards included Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.

"For those of you who like Helmut Newton but were reluctant to shell out half your paycheck for his 'SUMO,' there's 'Work.' In it you'll get the same big nudes, the same celebrity faces caught in revealing poses and the same unsettling fashion shots... Pound for pound, it's a big bargain."
