One of the great masters of 20th century photography, Helmut Newton made a name for himself exploring the female form—his cult status endures long after his tragic death in a Los Angeles car crash in 2004. But his striking and subversive depictions of women still spark the question: were they treated as subjects or objects? The stars of his iconic portraits and fashion editorials—from Catherine Deneuve to Grace Jones, Charlotte Rampling to Isabella Rossellini—finally give their own interpretation in this striking portrait of a controversial genius.
