On the occasion of the official inauguration of the Museum of Photography Place Pierre Gautier in Nice, discover the Helmut Newton exhibition!
From a German Jewish father and an American mother, Helmut studied at the Werner von Trotschke High School in Berlin and then at the American School in Berlin. He became interested in photography very early, and in 1936 became the pupil of the German photographer Else Simon, known as "Yva", to whom he owed his style of photography. He left Nazi Germany in 1938 and then emigrated to Australia. After the war, he worked as a freelance photographer by making fashion photographs and work for the magazine Playboy. It was in the late 1950s that he concentrated more on fashion clichés. He then moved to Paris in 1961 and became a fashion photographer. His works appear in many magazines, especially in Vogue. His style, sometimes of sensual subjectivity, is marked by eroticism, by stylized scenes and often by underlying violence.
