SH*T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! im in shock and tears.
i just saw him few weeks ago parking his car next to mine

he is a big idol of mine and i had contacted him (on his voicemail) a while ago to do some work with him



he lied here most of the year and i bumped into him and his wife a lot.
how sad his wife must be

i send her all my love

and as difficult as it is for me to say this and understand this horrible news:

may he rest in peace and style

LOVE YOU HELMUT

[/QUOTE]Photographer Helmut Newton Killed in Crash
47 minutes ago

LOS ANGELES - Acclaimed fashion photographer Helmut Newton died Friday after his car sped out of control from the driveway of the famed Chateau Marmont hotel and crashed into a wall, police said. He was 83.

Newton, whose work appeared in magazines such as Playboy, Elle and Vogue, was best known for his stark, black-and-white nude photos of women.

Newton apparently lost control of his Cadillac while leaving the Hollywood hotel, said Officer April Harding, a police spokeswoman. It was unclear whether he became ill while driving.

People were on the sidewalk in front of the driveway, and the car brushed a photographer heading into the hotel before crashing into the wall.

Newton was taken by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he died a short time later, Harding said.

Newton is survived by his wife, June, who works under the name Alice Springs. She was also a favorite subject for the photographer. In one 1973 series of photos, she was portrayed as Hitler wearing a cropped mustache, with model Jerry Hall posing as Eva Braun. The Newtons had no children. [QUOTE]

Brilliant man. I'm thumbing through a stack of photography books at this very moment. Here's a scan of what's next to me as I type this.

To Helmut.
