Helmut Newton Legacy

The iconic work of Helmut Newton at the retrospective “Helmut Newton. Legacy” are on display until November 24, 2024, at the Stanze della Fotografia on the island of San Giorgio. After successful exhibitions in Milan and Rome, this comprehensive showcase curated by Matthias Harder and Denis Curti offers a profound exploration of Newton’s life and career.

Born Helmut Neustädter in Berlin in 1920, Newton’s journey from forced emigration due to racial laws to becoming one of the most influential fashion photographers of the twentieth century is documented in this exhibition. Set against the backdrop of Venice’s picturesque landscape, Newton’s elegant and daring style shines through in his captivating photographs.

From his collaborations with Vogue magazine to his groundbreaking approach to the female nude, exemplified by his iconic “Big Nudes”, Newton’s work transcends traditional boundaries. The exhibition features a collection of his most famous black and white shots, including those from the cult book “Big Nudes”, which pioneered a new frontier in photography.

Matthias Harder, curator of the Helmut Newton Foundation, highlights Newton’s frequent visits to Venice and his lasting legacy. The exhibition is organized into six chronological chapters, spanning Newton’s early years in Australia to his later years in Europe and the United States, offering visitors a comprehensive journey through the photographer’s illustrious career.

“Helmut Newton. Legacy” is a celebration of an artist who revolutionized the world of fashion photography and left an indelible mark on the art form. Don’t miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in Newton’s iconic imagery and explore the depth of his artistic legacy.
