Helmut Newton

28 10 2014

Newton must be one of the most recognizable and controversial photographers. He is best known for his fashion photography and photos of famous people. What’s gotten most attention is his nudes. They are always arresting. All of his photographs that I have seen looked staged. And because of that they remind me of collages. The parts of his pieces are not there by happenchance. Nor are they natural. But they do seem to be like scenes from a story/film. There is a atmosphere in his photos of fascism. A kind of fetish for the 40s. Like a wet dream and a nightmare at the same time.
