The Famous Photographs of Helmut Newton


Helmut Newton was one of the most influential photographers of all time. At the age of 12, he received his first camera, which eventually had a huge impact on his dream to pursue a career in photography.

Newton had his fame in the 1970s with his provocative and erotic photographs. He first began working for French Vogue, but later on all high fashion magazines wanted to work with him. Newton preferred to shoot in streets or interiors, rather than on closed doors in his studio.

In 1990 he was awarded the Grand Prix national de la photographie; in 1992 the German government awarded him Das Grosse Verdienstkreuz for services to German culture, and he was appointed Officier des Arts, Lettres et Sciences by S.A.S. Princess Caroline of Monaco.

In this post we bring you the most famous photographs from this legendary photographer.
