Fashion Photographers We love - Helmut Newton

(31 October 1920 – 23 January 2004)

''I like photographing the people I love, the people I admire, the famous, and especially the infamous.''

Helmut Newton was born on October 31, 1920 in Berlin,  grew up in a privileged family. Due to his passion for photography, he stopped going to school and pursued an apprenticeship with Elsie Simon, a top photographer. He only had this job for a while because he had to feel Germany due to Adolf Hitler's violent treatment of Jews in Germany.  His name became synonymous to the magazine's look and feel, leading to more work for other magazines such as Nova, Queen, Marie-Claire, Elle, Playboy and different editions of Vogue. His provocative photos of women earned him the titles “Prince of Porn” and “King of Kink”. This image of his kind of photography was cemented with the release of his book called “White Women,” an erotic publication that defines his style and artistic vision.
