HELMUT NEWTON
1988


Director: Adrian Maben
DVD Specials: Picture Gallery & Trailer

Strong women in provocative poses, confident, mysterious – in Helmut Newton’s photography, the lines between art and pornography are blurred. Whether fashion, portraiture or nudes, Newton’s dramatically staged, voyeuristic shots are also reflections of Western society. In 1988, Adrian Maben visited the star photographer in his adopted home in Monte Carlo and accompanied him to photo sessions in Los Angeles, Berlin and Paris. On these trips, he caught rare glimpses of the artist’s private life and work. Stars like Karl Lagerfeld and Catherine Deneuve recount what it was like to work with one of the most sought-after photographers of the 20th century.
