Over the years, Newton's work centred primarily on fashion, nudes, and portraits, with the three categories often mixing. With the encouragement of his wife, June Newton, he began to photograph more overtly erotic nudes, sometimes in his studio, and other times in the jet-set retreats of Europe and The Americas. His black-and-white photographs combine the feel of 1930s noir photojournalism with aspects of New Wave films, reflecting his directorial mastery.
Helmut Newton is one of the most important and controversial photographers of the 20th Century. Newton’s pictures, whether fashion, nude or portraits, are often highly erotic, bold, and provocative. Newton’s photographs have appeared in publications such as Playboy, Marie-Claire, Elle, Vogue among others as well as numerous international solo exhibitions.
