Helmut Newton, 1920-2004


Helmut Newton died in a car crash in Hollywood on Jan. 23, at the age of 83. Newton was known for his black-and-white nudes and his fashion photography, which appeared in magazines such as Elle and Vogue. Newton's wife June, who works as Alice Springs, accepted the offer of an official grave of honor in Newton's hometown, Berlin.

Newton left Germany in 1938, changed his name from Neustaedter, and took Australian citizenship. After World War II, he became a photographer, eventually settling in Monte Carlo. An exhibition of his black-and-white pictures is scheduled to open in Berlin on June third.
