Helmut Newton at Casa dei Tre Oci in Venice. Fascinating insights into the world of the great photographer of timeless elegance
Itineraries and tours
Helmut Newton’s photography influenced the visual culture of an epoch. He was the first to get fashion shoots out of the studio and into real world locations, the city, the streets, portraying beautiful, often completely unclothed, women. His erotically charged images were meant to evoke, provoke, and seduce, presenting a new woman, one that was way beyond the cultural models of the 1970s.
