Helmut Newton- Scandal and sophistication [23 Jul 2007]

Helmut NEWTON’s first photographs, taken in the 1930s when he was an adolescent, already testify to his cult subjects: fashion, woman and the portrait. His first success came after the Second World War when he published his work in Playboy and various other magazines and set his style in the 1970s.Thanks to a skilful cocktail of eroticism and voyeurism, power and domination, seduction and proudly assumed “bad taste”, his photos attract some people, shock others but leave nobody indifferent.

Helmut Newton died exactly a year ago at the wheel of his Cadillac at the age of 83. A highly talented fashion photographer, Newton is best known for his black and white photographs of tall and slender women and for his celebrity portraits. Shortly before his death, the artist bequeathed more than a thousand of his most emblematic photos to Berlin, the city where he was born. This collection – a brilliant sample of the depth of his work – has been on display since last June at the new Helmut Newton Foundation Museum

Contemporary photography: prices surge in this more selective and transparent market [13 Jun 2002]

In a market segment which attracts young collectors hammer prices rise and fall in line with sales. Despite being a particularly unstable market, contemporary photographers have commanded steadily rising prices in recent years. But prices are still influenced by economic swings and speculation. The talent of these artists is not yet rooted in art history or in the market. Selection is particularly tough.
