‘Elsa Peretti in Bunny Costume’ is a lasting image of the 1970’s. Newton shot this work in New York amongst the towering skyscrapers that characterize the American Dream, equally epitomized by the Playboy lifestyle in the 70’s. In it, Newton features the iconic motifs of his work- casting the intimacy of the night into the reality of the day, the clothing of the private into the sphere of the public and perhaps most masterfully, the voyeuristic gaze. From every window within the skyscrapers, we sense powerful gazes looking down on Peretti.
Elsa Peretti is one of Helmut Newton’s most iconic photographs. This variation of the better known version we have has rarely come to market. We have only two of these original vintage sIlver gelatin photographs available.
