Strong women in provocative poses, confident, mysterious in Helmut Newton's photography, the lines between art and pornography are blurred. Whether fashion, portraiture or nudes, Newton's dramatically staged, voyeuristic shots are also
reflections of Western society. In 1988, Adrian Maben visited the star photographer in his adopted home in
Monte Carlo and accompanied him to photo sessions in Los Angeles, Berlin and Paris. On these trips, he caught rare glimpses of the artist's private life and work. Stars like Karl Lagerfeld and Catherine Deneuve recount what it was like to work with one of the most
sought-after photographers of the 20th century.
