Helmut Newton: Private Property (Schirmer Visual Library)
by Marshall Blonsky
Publisher's Description
Through their inimitable mixture of eroticism, subdued elegance and decadent luxury, Newton's pictures reflect in the highest aesthetic quality an obsession with human vanity-from female exhibitionism to male voyeurism. With technical perfection, an extremely detailed style and a relentless directness, Newton staged the neverending psychodrama that contrasts glamour with the need for admiration, self-confidence with the desire for self-presentation, and Eros with Thanatos. Private Property was originally a three-part portfolio containing 45 black-and-white photographs. It includes Newton's best work from the period 1972-1983-an exquisite assortment of fashion shots, portraits, and erotic motifs which are all based on real locations and luxurious life styles. The entire sequence of picture from the Private Property portfolio is included in our book which first appeared in 1989.
