Synopsis: Danger and decadence 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.”
About the Author:
Helmut Newton (1920-2004) was one of the most influential photographers of all time. Born in Berlin, he arrived in Australia in 1940 and married June Brunell (a.k.a. Alice Springs) eight years later. He first achieved international fame in the 1970's while working principally for French Vogue, and his celebrity and influence grew over the decades. Newton preferred to shoot in streets or interiors, rather than studios. Controversial scenarios, bold lighting, and striking compositions came to form his signature look. 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 1996, he was appointed Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by Philippe Douste-Blazy, the French Minister of Culture at the time. Working and living in close companionship with his wife until his death at 83, his images remain as distinctive, seductive and orginal as ever.
Philippe Garner is a Director of Christie's and is their International Head of Photographs and of 20th Century Decorative Art & Design. He is widely recognised as an authority within these fields and has written numerous essays and books on specific aspects of the history of photography and the applied arts. 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.
