Book Description

25 Feb 2013
Let the ladies shine. This title covers topics ranging from Newton's formative years to his rise to the top. Somewhat ironically, there are lots of men to be seen in Helmut Newton's "World Without Men" collection. But these guys are bystanders, admirers, observers - the photos are all about the women and their influence. "We don't need men, men need us" could be their motto. Taken between the mid 1960s and early 1980s, this selection of Newton fashion editorials captures the evolution of his photographic style over nearly two decades. The photos are accompanied by journal entry-style texts by Newton providing anecdotes and describing the circumstances of each shoot. On every page is evidence of Newton's groundbreaking vision that transformed fashion photography - an influence that can still be seen today in the pages of the greatest fashion magazines.

More About the Author

Helmut Newton (1920-2004) was one of the most influential photographers of all time. Born in Berlin, he arrived in Australia in 1940 and married June Brunell (a.k.a. Alice Springs) eight years later. He first achieved international fame in the 1970's while working principally for French Vogue, and his celebrity and influence grew over the decades. Newton preferred to shoot in streets or interiors, rather than studios. Controversial scenarios, bold lighting, and striking compositions came to form his signature look. In 1990 he was awarded the Grand Prix National for photography; in 1992 the German government awarded him Das Grosse Verdienstkreuz for services to German culture, and he was appointed Officer des Arts, Lettres et Sciences by S.A.S. Princess Caroline of Monaco. In 1996, he was appointed Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by Philippe Douste-Blazy, the French Minister of Culture at the time. Working and living in close companionship with his wife until his death at 83, his images remain as distinctive, seductive and orginal as ever.
