Helmut Newton at Grand Palais

April 12, 2012

The first French retrospective of the cult American photographer

  • Text by Violaine Schutz

He was more than a fashion photographer, and created a world where women are strong and don't need men. So, a genius... But since Newton’s death in 2004, there has been no retrospective of his work in France until now, althought he did much of his work here especially for the French edition of Vogue. Provocative, heretical, sometimes shocking, Newton's work explores beauty, sex, humour and violence, showing the links between fashion and power. This exhibition at the Grand Palais that is currently on runs to June 17 and brings together more than 200 images in the form of original and vintage prints, Polaroids, contact sheets and huge exhibition pieces like cover records.
