Helmut Newton Polaroids Give Glimpse of Controversial Artist

OneModelPlace.com members may remember that Helmut Newton first garnered international fame in the ‘70s when his provocative, sexually charged photographs regularly appeared in French Vogue.

The Daily Beast reports that Newton’s revolutionary influence only grew with time as he further developed his signature racy aesthetic, capturing his subjects in controversial scenarios and casting them in stark light.

Exhibited this year at Berlin’s Museum für Fotografie, a rare collection of Newton’s Polaroids provides a never-before-seen glimpse into some of his most famous shoots.

From women scantily clad in leather and fur, to unabashed nudes framed in striking compositions, the photographer’s original outtakes are featured in the new exhibition catalog.
