Helmut Newton / Alice Springs: Us and Them
Helmut Newton: Sex and Landscapes

05.06.2014 to 16.11.2014
Museum für Fotografie

In June 2014 the Helmut Newton Foundation celebrates its tenth year anniversary. The museum first opened its doors with the exhibitions "Us and Them” and "Sex and Landscapes,” which were selected by Helmut Newton shortly before his death. Now, ten years later, foundation president June Newton (a.k.a. Alice Springs) has chosen the same combination.

"Us and Them” is a joint exhibition and book project by Helmut and June Newton. A photographic journal of their life together, the project includes self-portraits, at times intimate, reciprocal portraits, as well as photographs of actors, artists, and other prominent figures of the times. Taken during the 1980s and 1990s at separate sittings, the photographs of the international jet set by Helmut Newton and Alice Springs are presented side-by-side in pairs.

The exhibition "Sex and Landscapes” brings together large-format landscapes and nude photographs taken in black-and-white and color between 1974 and 2001. Overclouded seascapes and breaking waves outside Monte Carlo or neo-baroque Madonna figurines in small Italian towns mingle with nudes in glamorous and provocative scenes of erotic obsession, played out by a female cast.
