Following “Playboy”‘s celebrated fiftieth anniversary “Photographs” and “Cartoons” comes an arresting retrospective of Helmut Newton. One of the 20th century’s most influential photographers. Renowned for his carefully composed, almost cinematic shots. Newton’s signature style makes for a dramatic counterpoint to the Playboy nudes known the world over.
Collected between shimmering metallic covers are more than 150 color and black and white images. Here we see Newton’s take on Playmates in Los Angeles, Nastassja Kinski playing out a fantasy with a doppelganger doll, a Lolita esque travelog, and also more. With a foreword by Hugh M. Hefner, an introduction by celebrated writer Walter Abish. As well as an afterword by Playboy’s director of photography for the past 30 years, Gary Cole. “Playboy: Helmut Newton” is the definitive book of Newton nudes.
