Helmut Newton (1920-2004) was one of the most singular and successful photographers of his generation, known for his provocative fusion of fashion, portrait, and erotic subjects.
Philippe Garner, a fifty-plus years veteran of the art auction world, has admired Newton's work since he first discovered it in the late Sixties. He met Newton in 1975 and enjoyed his friendship until the photographer's death in 2004. Now Vice-President of the Helmut Newton Foundation, he looks back on Newton's life and work in response to questions from David Breuer, Chief Executive of the Ben Uri Gallery and Museum.
The event was recorded and will be made available online soon.
