Book Description

April 15, 2011 Stern Fotografie
A master of eroticism's dark potential, Helmut Newton redefined fashion photography in the 1950s and 60s--and perhaps even modern sexuality. Newton's influence has grown to be monumental in scope and impact. Photographing for magazines like Playboy and Vogue, Newton was provocative, to say the least, in his portrayals of stylized erotic scenes, often featuring sado-maschostic undertones.

This new monograph of Newton's work showcases the landmark photographs that were a product of a close collaboration between Newton and stern magazine. Spanning 27 years and featuring photographs that have never before been reproduced in book format, this book reflects Newton's diverse talent and exuberant spirit.

After reviewing the Helmut Newton Polaroid Collection and coming away very unsatisfied, it was nice to see some of the better examples of Newton's quirky, erotic fashion style again. As can be seen in this 63rd issue of "Stern FOTOGAFIE", his Stern assignments had a strong influence on the development of Helmut Newton's unusual style. There is just something comforting about the way he portrays unbreakable, tough-as-nails and unattainably beautiful women. Stern was the West German magazine that gave Helmut Newton "a free hand to stage-manage and photograph the way he wanted: sex and luxury, eroticism and elegance." It also gave him the budget to travel the world with a bevy of beautiful models and "mountains of new and expensive clothes in their luggage."
"Newton never showed a weak, humiliated or inferior women. His women were never the object of the viewer, but rather the subject of some happening."
"Newton's photos portray women as powerful, superior beings. The precise, subtle way Newton accentuated his photos is evident in imperceptible details. `Never laugh--Helmut didn't like models laughing,' Barbara Larcher recalls. Newton thought that laugher could be seen as weakness, an invitation or even stupidity. Not laughing signifies superiority. And elegance."
One strange aspect of many of Newton's models was their strong resemblance to the perfect German Super Woman as epitomized by Hitler's favorite film maker Leni Riefenstah. Since Newton was Jewish and escaped Berlin at the last possible moment only to be constantly in fear of the Nazi Jew hunters as he fled around the entire planet, it's somewhat surprising that he still cherished these Nazi versions of the perfect German women.
