Helmut Newton. Legacy


On 28 March, the retrospective Helmut Newton. Legacy, curated by Matthias Harder – director of the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin – and Denis Curti – artistic director of Le Stanze della Fotografia – will open at Le
Stanze della Fotografia.
Through 250 photographs, magazines, documents and videos, the exhibition will trace the entire career of one of the most loved and provocative photographers of all time. Alongside his most iconic images, a corpus of
previously unpublished photographs (presented for the first time in Italy) will reveal many lesser-known aspects of Newton’s work, with a specific focus on his most unconventional fashion shots. Polaroids and contact
sheets will also offer insight into the creative process of some of the iconic motifs featured, while special publications, archival materials and statements by the photographer himself will help visitors understand the
context in which this extraordinary artist’s inspiration first emerged.
