helmut newton had his own unique way of photographing the beauty, sensuality, humour & violence he saw underlying the behavior of people in the world of fashion, luxury & power. this retrospective covers the core aspects of his provocative & often shocking oeuvre, which include fashion, nudes, portraits, sex & humour. newton's classic photography transcends fashion & marks him out as an artist who, brushing aside the limitations imposed by his medium, experimented with subjects & genres; he expanded the scope of contemporary visual culture with his singular vision.
