Matthias Harder, director of the Helmut Newton Foundation, selected 68 photographs designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the long career of this great photographer whose truly unique visual concepts have, from the very beginning, never ceased to amaze and make a sensation. The result is an exceptionally characteristic and accomplished body of work that has reached a public of millions through magazines and books.

The works on display range from the 1970s, with the numerous covers for Vogue, to Newton’s later work with his beautiful portrait of Leni Riefenstahl dated 2000, thus offering visitors the opportunity to fully appreciate his work as never before.

Four sections present Newton’s work in this long time span, featuring some of the most powerful and innovative shots of his time. Numerous portraits of 20th century celebrities will be on display, including those of Gianni Agnelli (1997), Paloma Picasso (1983), Catherine Deneuve (1976), Anita Ekberg (1988), Claudia Schiffer (1992) and Gianfranco Ferré (1996).

As to Newton’s most important fashion photo campaigns, the photos he created for Mario Valentino and Thierry Mugler in 1998 will be exhibited together with a series of important, by now iconic, photographs for the most important international fashion magazines.
