Alice Springs: Retrospective

03.06.2023 to 19.11.2023
Museum für Fotografie

To mark 100 years since the birth of June Newtown (also known as Alice Springs), the Helmut Newton Foundation is dedicating a large-scale retrospective to this photographer, with more than 200 photographs spread across the entire exhibition space of the first floor of the Museum für Fotografie.

Alice Springs and Helmut Newton exhibited their work together on various occasions, especially as part of their joint photography project Us and Them. In 2010 and 2016, major Alice Springs exhibitions were put together by the Helmut Newton Foundation. In her numerous portraits of fellow photographers – including Richard Avedon, Brassaï, Ralph Gibson and of course Helmut Newton – and of celebrities such as Nicole Kidman, Audrey Hepburn, Christopher Lambert and Claude Chabrol, Alice Springs manages to capture not just the appearance of her subjects, but also their aura. The silent dialogue that leads to these extraordinary portraits seems to be founded in a deep affinity. Alongside these often iconic portraits, there will also be a range of new discoveries featured in the retrospective, which in turn will be accompanied by a major monograph.

A special exhibition by the Helmut Newton Foundation at the Museum für Fotografie, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.
