Helmut Newton legacy

Hosted by the Palazzo Reale and the Marsilio Arte, the Helmut Newton Foundation is holding a photography exhibition curated by Matthias Harder, the Foundation’s director in Berlin, in collaboration with Denis Curti. An event that depicts the long career of one of the most beloved and talked-about photographers of all time through 250 photographs, magazines, documents and videos. Alongside the iconic images, a selection of unpublished photographs, unveiled for the first time in Italy, explores the lesser-known aspects of Newton’s work, with a particular focus on his most unconventional fashion shots. In a journey divided into chronological chapters, visitors will be able to go through all the phases, developments in the photographer’s life and professional career, from the beginning to the last years of production. The exhibition is part of Milan Art Week, the extensive event coordinated by the Municipality – Department of Culture, in collaboration with Miart, the international exhibition of modern and contemporary art in Milan. The curtain opened on 24 March, with the public being able to visit until 26 June. Special publications, archival material and statements by the photographer will help visitors understand the context in which the inspiration of this extraordinary artist was born by focusing on the uniqueness, style and provocative aspect of his work.
