Helmut Newton Bio (Click to expand)

Helmut Newton was a German high-fashion photographer whose subversive approach to subject matter brought an edge to his editorial spreads. “There must be a certain look of availability in the women I photograph,” he said of his models. “I think the woman who gives the appearance of being available is sexually much more exciting than a woman who's completely distant. This sense of availability I find erotic.” Born on October 31, 1920 in Berlin, Germany, Newton’s Jewish heritage meant that he had to flee his home country during the Nazi rise to power. The artist settled in Australia in the 1940s, where he later set up a studio. Newton went on to photograph models Cindy Crawford and Charlotte Rampling for several well-known magazines, including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Playboy, and Elle. Though he continued to work commercially throughout his life, he began creating more personal work during the 1970s and Helmut Newton photography became known worldwide for its energy and erotic style. In 1999, his now-famous book “Helmut Newton SUMO”, was released by TASCHEN publishing house, chronicling decades of his most iconic work. The artist died in an automobile accident on January 23, 2004 at the age of 83 in West Hollywood, CA. Today, his works can be found in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the National Library of Australia in Canberra, and the International Center of Photography in New York.

Global Images is pleased to present an iconic collection of Helmut Newton prints in our collection. It contains images from Newton’s 1980’s “Private Property” exhibitions in London, Paris, and New York featuring 45 of what Newton considered to be his best work at the time. Helmut Newton photos are typically categorized into the three categories he followed throughout his career, celebrity, fashion, and nudes. Helmut Newton nudes were something he took up later in his career, but they have become some of the defining images of his legacy. His works have enjoyed a steady appreciation in value since his death with Helmut Newton prices at auction recently setting a personal record of 1.8m US dollars in April 2019. The limited selection of images is sure to be a great investment for years to come as well as a beautiful addition to any collection. Helmut Newton art is sought after and collected worldwide, and we hope you enjoy this collection as much as we do.
