HELMUT NEWTON: THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

Germany (2020), 89 min.

Directed by Gero von Boehm

Women were clearly at the core of legendary photographer Helmut Newton’s work.

The stars of his iconic portraits and fashion editorials – from Anna Wintour to Grace Jones, Charlotte Rampling to Isabella Rossellini – finally give their own interpretation of the life and work of this controversial genius.

A portrait by the portrayed. Provocative, unconventional, subversive, his depiction of women still sparks the question: were they subjects or objects?
