MONEY & POWER
Beginning March 24th, The Grand Palais in Paris is set to hold a major exhibit of legendary photographer Helmut Newton’s life work. Since Newton’s death in 2004, there has been no retrospective of his photography in France, though he did much of his work there, particularly for French Vogue. This major retrospective will feature more than 200 photographs, mostly originals and vintage prints made under the photographer’s direct supervision.
“Provocative, sometimes shocking, Newton’s work tried to capture the beauty, eroticism, humor, and sometimes violence that he sensed in the social interaction within the familiar worlds of fashion, luxury, money and power,” the museum informs.
Aside from his more recognizable work, other realms of his art will also be featured, as well as a documentary film entitled, Helmut by June, made by the late artist's wife June Newton, also a photographer and the designer of this exhibition.
