Helmut Newton: In Focus
The Jewish Museum of Australia is presenting works from one of the world's most risqué fashion photographers in Helmut Newton: In Focus, a definitive exploration of the work of German-born, and one-time Melbourne-based photographer Helmut Newton. Once dubbed the 'king of kink', Helmut Newton was once one of the 20th century's most provocative and prolific fashion photographers. Shooting fashion royalty like Claudia Schiffer and Grace Jones, Newton is known for his collaborations with international magazines like Vogue and Vanity Fair. Helmut: In Focus is a collaborative exhibition between the Jewish Museum of Australia and Photo 2022 International Festival of Photography and allows the general public to view Newton's expansive photography portfolio, but also dive deep into his Jewish roots and early life. Helmut Newton: In Focus brings together fashion, photography and visual arts audiences alike.
