The Grand Palais Reveals Helmut Newton

Since Helmut Newton’s death (1920 – 2004), there has been no retrospective of his work in France. The Grand Palais has fixed this big mistake, with 200 photographs, mostly original or vintage prints, taken by the fashion photographer who gave a second breath to the French edition of Vogue. Provocative, sometimes shocking, Newton’s work tried to capture the beauty, eroticism, humor and sometimes violence. A unique opportunity to discover how much Newtonian women are powerful, seductive and dominant – never icy but always impressive or even intimidating. These pictures could feed the idea of world conquest for some…
