Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Online talk: Helmut Newton: Living to make pictures / 17 May 2022

Helmut Newton (1920-2004) was one of the most singular and successful photographers of his generation, known for his provocative fusion of fashion, portrait, and erotic subjects.

Philippe Garner, a 50-plus years veteran of the art auction world, has admired Newton’s work since he discovered it in the late sixties.

He met Newton in 1975 and enjoyed his friendship until the photographer’s death in 2004. Now Vice-President of the Helmut Newton Foundation, he looks back on Newton’s life and work in response to questions from David Breuer, Chief Executive of the Ben Uri Gallery and Museum.

Hello Michael and all, just a note to say that we are currently hosting a major exhibition on Helmut Newton at the Jewish Museum of Australia in Melbourne, focusing on Newton's Melbourne years and early influences while also showcasing some of his iconic works from the 1970s and 80s. More here for those that wish to follow/visit on site or online: Feel free to reach to me if of interest. Many thanks, Eleni Papavasileiou, Senior Curator & Collection Manager, Jewish Museum of Australia.
