      Helmut Newton. Sex & Landscapes

      The collection Sex & Landscapes brings together a rich selection from Helmut Newton’s little-known landscape and travel photographs, as well as unseen “tougher” sex pictures, described by Philippe Garner of de Pury & Luxembourg as “Helmut’s world of dark, brooding seas, baroque statuary, crashing waves, a long desert highway under threatening skies, a Berlin park at dusk, enigmatic apartment buildings at night, the Rhine seen from the air, the shadows of airplanes, all this interwoven with hard and voyeuristic sexual imagery, plus a touch of his high style and glamour.”

      The photographer

      Helmut Newton (1920–2004) was one of the most influential photographers of all time. He first achieved international fame in the 1970s while working principally for French Vogue, and became celebrated for his controversial scenarios, bold lighting, and striking compositions in street or interior settings, rather than studios. His many titles and awards included Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.

      The author

      Philippe Garner is a former Director of Christie’s and International Head of Photographs and 20th Century Decorative Art & Design. His books include studies of the life and work of Emile Gallé and photographers Cecil Beaton and John Cowan, as well as thematic investigations such as his Sixties Design for TASCHEN. He has also curated museum exhibitions in London, Paris, and Tokyo.

      “I just recently discovered the awesome Helmut Newton book Sex and Landscapes and I was excited to see many photographs that I had never seen before! The contrast of really majestic black and white landscapes with startling and intoxicating nudes is such a refreshing and inspiring way to look at his work.”
