Helmut Newton is one of the most provocative fashion photographers. I remember going to an exhibit of his at the Barbican Gallery in London and being wildly seduced by his work. He mostly worked in black and white, which made his fleshy photos more tasteful and dynamic. This book contains all the icons of Newton’s special fields of interest including fashion, nudes, portraits as well as works for which he became world famous – the sensational fashion photos for British Vogue, Liz Taylor with a parrot in a swimming pool, the "Big Nudes" and some of his later macabre wax figures. Looking for a Valentine's Day gift you can both enjoy together? Here is an idea. My favorite coffee table book of his is The Best of Helmut Newton: Selections From His Photographic Work, $24.12. You can add this into my seduction mix and see what happens...xoxo.
