POA (photos of actual artwork)

One of Newton's most popular images, this picture was shot for Vogue Hommes in 1981. Newton decided to model the trench coat himself, reportedly having been uninterested in photographing a male model. His wife, June, arrived to meet Helmut for lunch, and he directed her to the seat beside the seemless background paper, where, being very hot in the studio, she opened the door behind.

This photograph features one of Newton's favourite models, Sylvia Gobbel, whom we interviewed during 2018. Sylvia gave us the inside story of how this picture came about; this is Sylvia's favourite of Newton's photographs of her, and we can understand entirely why.
