Helmut Newton

Helmut Newton is one of the most famous fashion photographers.  His work spanned four decades and appeared frequently in Vogue and Harper's Bazaar.

Newton was born in Germany in 1920.  Being Jewish, he left the country as a teenager.  He travelled to Australia, then moved to England, and later lived in Paris.

Newton's photos, while beautiful, had a distinct edge which set them apart from conventional stuff.  Sometimes, his photos even had erotic charge.  Here is a sample of his photographs.  Tell me what you think.
