[/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]
