Helmuth Newton: Authentic autograph on an artist photo postcard from 1983 Bordighera détails .
4 x 6 inches. The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Helmut Newton, born Helmut Neustaedter (1920 – 2004) was a German-Australian fashion photographer noted for his nude studies of women.
The son of a German-Jewish button-factory owner and an American mother, Newton was interested in photography from a young age. Fleeing Nazi Germany in 1938 to escape persecution as a Jew, Newton worked briefly in Singapore as a photographer for the Straits Times before settling in Melbourne, Australia.
Once he arrived in Australia he was first interned, along with many other enemy aliens, before serving with the Australian Army during World War II as a truck driver.
He went into partnership with fellow photographer Henry Talbot in 1956, and his association with the studio continued even after 1959 when he left Australia for London. The studio was renamed 'Helmut Newton and Henry Talbot'.
Newton settled in Paris in 1961 and began extensive work as a fashion photographer. His works appeared in magazines including, most significantly, French Vogue. He established a particular style marked by erotic, stylized scenes, often with sado-masochistic and fetishist subtexts.
He was killed when his car hit in a car accident on Sunset Boulevard.
