Condition Report:

This print is in good condition.

“I love women, I admire them greatly,” Helmut Newton one confessed. “And when people say ‘you use them like objects of desire,’ [I think to myself,] ‘well, I hope they are objects of desire.’ It would be terrible if they weren’t.” However, for Newton the objectification of his models was not to benefit his own pleasure, but rather, their own. Drawing inspiration from Berlin’s leading zeitgeist publications from the 1920s and 30s such as Berliner Illustrirte Zeitung and others, Newton created a working space for his models that was part decadent and part unorthodox—a safe microcosm in which fantasies became reality. And perhaps most famously of all, Newton engendered an environment in which his female models—all tall, statuesque and curvaceous—claimed the space around them with unapologetic poise and commanding sensuality. Unsurprisingly, as a photographer Newton believed that his job was to “seduce, amuse and entertain.”
