Free guiding tour in english through Helmut Newton’s PRIVATE exhibition on the opening day of the Border Crossing project
About the exhibition:
Helmut Newton (1920–2004) never ceased to both astound and polarize. Early in his career, he succeeded in finding fellow creative spirits who appreciated his unique visual concepts. The result is a body of work that is not only exceptionally characteristic and accomplished but also one that has reached a public of millions through the magazines and books in which his photographs have appeared as well through the exhibitions of his
prints. Spanning more than five decades, the work of Helmut Newton defies categorization. Newton transcended genres, bringing elegance, style, and voyeurism to fashion, beauty, and glamour photography for an oeuvre that remains as inimitable as it is unrivaled. Fashion photography – which not only describes but also redefines the spirit of
the times – aims to tell exciting and surprising stories with images. In this respect, Newton mastered this task perfectly.
Admission is free.
