Newton, Helmut (Australian photographer, 1920-2004, born in Germany)

Note: Newton is internationally known for his erotic, often controversial fashion and portrait photography. In 1938, he went to Australia and later acquired naturalized citizenship there. He settled in Paris in 1961, working for the French, British, Italian, and American issues of "Vogue" magazine, as well as "Elle," "Playboy," and "Stern." Criticized as chauvinistic, women in Newton's images often find themselves in precarious situations, such as bondage or other erotic acts, and the exact nature of the situation is left for the viewer to interpret. Many of these tableaus are played out in opulent hotel suites, implying that the figures involved are complete strangers. His approach is to examine the internal turmoil women face in today's society; to have a share of the participation in a man's world without sacrificing traditional feminine identity. Newton was at the height of his popularity in the late 1970s and early 1980s, capturing images of the disco era and art world surrounding Andy Wharhol. While mostly known for his black-and-white-images, Newton's color photography is equally accomplished. Since 1981, Newton has divided his time between Monaco and Los Angeles.
