I love his work. It's so sexual without being sleezy or pornographic.

I've always liked his work, even though I've seen very little. Tonight I ventured into this thread and am amazed at all the photos. I never thought of his work before, I just knew it was colourful and sexy. I really, really appreciate everyone contributing their thoughts, and of course scans and photos! I saved many to my computer. Most of them, in fact. Soon I'm off to look for more of his images in search engines.

His work is, like one here said, very sexual but it's never sleazy or 'slutty' or disgusting or crude. His work is very hard and bold. Amazing stuff. I'm going to buy his photo books.

I have his autobiography. I've only read about half of it, but from what I've read he's rather funny and mischevious. And two questions:

Helmut shot for Vogue an awful lot. I've checked out back issues of Vogue dating back to around 2000, and in all those magazines I don't really remember a tribute to him after his death or something - but then again, I wasn't specifically looking through the magazines for his work. Was there anything done by US Vogue, or any magazines, etc.?

AND is there a program where you can take two scanned images that have been spliced and put them back together? You know, some photos in magazines take up two pages, and when uploaded here they are often in different links instead of together. It's awfully hard to fit them together in MSPaint. Just wondering if there is a program out there to download that puts them together.

Long comment, but I just wanted people to know I really appreciate the images posted here. Fantastic thread!

you're right, I also don't remember a Vogue tribute for Helmut, but I'm almost sure I missed it. he died in early 2004 so if there's a tribute you have to look in 2004 issues.

I don't think there's software to do that, it's all about your skills in photoshop or similars, like this picture from Vogue, it's really amazing the way they joined the two pictures. it's perfect, flawless!

Leon Constantiner : Helmut Newton et moi

LE MONDE | 31.08.07 | 16h48 • Mis à jour le 31.08.07 | 16h54

u début de 2008, une des plus importantes collections dans la photographie de mode pourrait être mise en vente. Cela dépendra d'un bébé à naître. Une fille. Celle que Leon et Michaela Constantiner attendent. Leon a 48 ans, Michaela, 27. Leon s'interroge : "Etre un vieux père prend plus de temps." Il ajoute, comme pour se définir : "Qui n'a pas été socialiste à 18 ans n'a pas de coeur, dit-on. Connerie. Qui n'est pas devenu socialiste à 50 ans n'a pas de coeur, devrait-on affirmer. Jeune, j'étais républicain, capitaliste, avide de tout ; plus âgé, je suis plus concerné par l'avenir du monde et ses dérives. Alors, un bébé change tout."
Leon Constantiner est entré dans le monde des collectionneurs de photos un jour de 1991, chez Sotheby's à New York. Sur York Avenue, il tombe en arrêt devant une image d'Helmut Newton : un autoportrait avec sa femme June et un mannequin. Il était venu en dilettante à l'exposition comprenant cette image, le lendemain il l'arrache à 7 000 dollars (5 139 euros).
A cette époque, Leon n'est pas riche. Il est arrivé à New York quelques années plus tôt, du Mexique, où il est né en 1959, d'un père lituanien et d'une mère new-yorkaise. L'éternelle odyssée de ces familles juives de l'est de l'Europe qui ont eu la prémonition, au milieu des années 1930, de l'horreur qui s'avançait. Pourquoi le Mexique ? Parce que plus accueillant que les Etats-Unis, qui avaient restreint leurs quotas d'immigrés juifs.
La famille est aisée. La vie est agréable, l'éducation rigoureuse et libérale. Les Constantiner sont peu religieux. Une "manie" familiale est à noter : son père a constitué une des plus belles collections de montres de son époque.
En 1966, Leon a 7 ans. Il découvre New York avec sa famille. C'est l'enchantement, un hôtel de la 54e Rue, les néons, une ville qui ne s'arrête jamais. Seize ans plus tard, il y retourne, quand José Lopez Portillo, président mexicain, nationalise les banques. Le séjour durera un mois. Formalités d'immigration oblige, il attendra sept ans avant de pouvoir s'y installer. Quand il revient, il a 30 ans et il se tourne vers le cinéma. Il est producteur, fauché bien sûr. Sa cuisine est son bureau.
Son premier mariage va à vau-l'eau, il se retrouve seul. De longs en courts métrages, rien n'est un succès, alors il traîne. Comme il adore les femmes, il devient un pilier des plus flamboyants topless bars de New York. "J'y ai rencontré des centaines de filles. Elles me fascinaient. Avec aucune je n'ai eu d'histoire. Ce n'était pas le propos. Je les regardais et je découvrais que c'était elles qui nous dominaient. C'est cette évidence que j'ai retrouvée dans toutes les images d'Helmut Newton. Helmut misogyne ? Bullshit ! Il était l'ultime amoureux de la femme."
Leon Constantiner va alors abandonner le cinéma et se mettre à gérer le patrimoine familial. Moins glamour, plus rémunérateur. Il peut acheter sans emprunter. Sa seconde photo de Newton (une femme sellée comme un cheval), il l'achète 4 000 dollars. Le dixième, le centième ! de son prix aujourd'hui. Il trouve des images que même Newton croyait disparues, en écumant toutes les galeries et les marchands. A New York, Los Angeles, Londres. "Il y avait les bons, les honnêtes, les passionnés, mais aussi les escrocs, les arrivistes. Je ne leur en veux pas. On apprend de chacun. Longtemps, j'ai été le pigeon idéal."
Ils ont tort : Leon apprend. Peu après, il commence une seconde collection : celle des images de Marylin Monroe. Là aussi, un fantasme d'enfance, né dans une salle de cinéma de Mexico où l'on projetait Sept ans de réflexion. Il amassera toutes les plus belles images des photographes qui croiseront Marylin.
Le plus beau "Noël" photographique de Leon date de 1999. On apprend au collectionneur que Newton va passer au vernissage d'une galerie de New York. Leon est en transe. Helmut est là, en blouson de cuir et tennis blanches. "Bonjour monsieur, je suis votre plus grand fan et vous êtes mon héros." Conscient du ridicule du propos et en sueur, Leon Constantiner part en courant. Il attendra quatre ans son second rendez-vous avec le Père Noël. Il le reçoit chez lui, un penthouse à l'angle de Park Avenue et de la 58e Rue. A cette époque, Leon a seulement quatre-vingts Newton, disposées dans tout l'appartement. Helmut est bluffé : "Oh my God ! je ne croyais pas que c'était possible." Qu'aurait-il dit, s'il savait qu'il en possède aujourd'hui cinq cent un ? Dès lors, ils correspondront et se verront régulièrement, jusqu'à la mort du maître, en 2004. "J'ai pleuré pendant des heures."
Entre-temps, quelque chose a changé dans la vie de Leon Constantiner. C'était le 10 septembre 2001. A un dîner chez des amis, il rencontre une très belle Tchèque : Michaela. C'est son premier voyage à New York : elle ne connaît que quelques mots d'anglais. Elle le regarde avec effroi. "Ce type m'a accaparée pendant toute la soirée. Il parlait sans arrêt. J'étais avec mon fiancé. Leon n'en avait que faire. J'étais certaine que c'était un des clones du tueur de femmes dans American Psycho, que je venais de lire."
Leon sait qu'elle est la femme de sa vie. Mais le lendemain, 11 septembre, à la suite des attentats de la matinée, Michaela disparaît. Comme un fou, Leon la cherche partout. Elle réapparaît quelques semaines plus tard de Miami, où elle s'est réfugiée. Leon séduira Michaela. Ils ne se sépareront plus. Bluette sentimentale peut être, mais de cette rencontre naît la troisième collection : celle de la mode.
Michaela adore Penn, Bourdin, Sieff, Chris von Wagenhein, qu'elle lui fait découvrir : un monde tout autant chargé de sensualité et d'érotisme. Leon achète à nouveau. C'est d'autant plus facile qu'il est le seul à cette époque à s'y intéresser et à en avoir les moyens : "La plupart des musées et des grands collectionneurs ne se sont jamais intéressés à la photo de mode. C'est déplorable. C'est probablement le meilleur reflet de notre société."
En six ans, Leon Constantiner accumule l'essentiel des icônes de la mode. "Etre le premier est un orgasme formidable. Cela a changé ces deux dernières années. Une nouvelle race de collectionneurs est née. Plutôt des chasseurs : des investisseurs de Wall Street, qui achètent des oeuvres de Gursky ou Serrano, comme des trophées d'ours ou d'éléphants qu'ils font empailler et qu'ils exposent sur leurs murs. Ce marché-là ne durera pas."
Dans l'appartement qu'ils quitteront prochainement, avant la naissance du bébé, une centaine de photos sont exposées, qui changent au gré des humeurs. Avant-hier soir, leur salon était une chapelle consacrée à Penn et à Newton. A la dernière visite d'Helmut, dans ce salon il n'y avait que ses grands nus. Il a photographié le couple devant ses oeuvres. Il n'a jamais envoyé ses images.

U beginning of 2008, one of the most important collections in the photography of mode could be put on sale. That will depend on a baby to be born. A girl. That until Leon and Michaela Constantiner wait. Leon is 48 years old, Michaela, 27. Leon is questioned: "To be an old father takes more time." It adds, like being defined: "Which was not socialist to 18 years does not have heart, says one. Connery. Who did not become socialist at 50 years does not have a heart, should one affirm. Young person, I was republican, capitalist, avid of all; older, I am concerned more with the future of the world and his drifts. Then, a baby changes all."

Leon Constantiner entered the world of the collectors of photographs one day of 1991, at Sotheby' S in New York. On York Avenue, it falls in stop in front of an image from Helmut Newton: a self-portrait with its June wife and a mannequin. It had come as a dilettante to the exposure including/understanding this image, the following day it tears off it with 7 000 dollars (5 139 euros).At that time, Leon is not rich. It arrived to New York a few years earlier, of Mexico, where it was born in 1959, of a Lithuanian father and a new Yorkean mother. The eternal one of these Jewish families of the east of Europe which had the premonition, in the medium of the years 1930, the horror which advanced. Why Mexico? Because more accessible than the United States, which had restricted their quotas of Jewish immigrants.
The family is easy. The life is pleasant, rigorous and liberal education. Constantiner are little a monk. A family "mania" is to be noted: his/her father constituted one of the most beautiful collections of watches of his time.
In 1966, Leon is 7 years old. It discovers New York with its family. It is the enchantment, a hotel of the 54E Rue, neons, a city which never stops. Sixteen years later, it goes back there, when Lopez Portillo, Mexican president, nationalize the banks. The stay will last one month. Formalities of immigration obliges, it will wait seven years before being able to settle there. When it returns, it is 30 years old and it turns to the cinema. He is a producer, mown of course. Its kitchen is its office.
Its first marriage goes to vau-l' water, it is only found. The long ones in short films, nothing is a success, then it trails. As it adores the women, it becomes a pillar of more blazing the topless bars of New York. "I met hundreds of girls there. They fascinated me. With no I had history. It was not the matter. I looked at them and I discovered that it was they which dominated us. It is this obviousness which I found in all the images of Helmut Newton. Helmut misogynist? Bullshit! It was the ultimate in love one with the woman."
Leon Constantiner then will give up the cinema and will start to manage the family inheritance. Less glamour, remunerative. It can buy without borrowing. Its second photograph of Newton (a woman sellée like a horse), it buys it 4 000 dollars. The tenth, the hundredth! of its price today. It finds images that even Newton believed disappeared, by foaming all the galleries and the merchants. In New York, Los Angeles, London. "There were the goods, the honest ones, impassioned, but also the swindlers, the go-getters. I am not upset with them. One learns from each one. A long time, I was the ideal pigeon."
They are wrong: Leon learns. A little later it begins one second collection: that of the images of Marylin Monroe. There too, a phantasm of childhood, born in a movie theater of Mexico City where Seven years of reflexion were projected. It will pile up all the most beautiful images of the photographers who will cross Marylin.
Most beautiful photographic "Christmas" of Leon goes back to 1999. One learns with the collector that Newton will pass to the varnishing of a gallery of New York. Leon is in fright. Helmut is there, out of white tennis and leather jacket. "Hello Sir, I am your larger fan and you are my hero." Conscious of ridiculous the matter and in sweat, Leon Constantiner leaves while running. It will await four years its second go with the Father Christmas. It receives it at his place, a penthouse with the angle of Park Avenue and the 58E Rue. At that time, Leon has only eighty Newton, laid out in all the apartment. Helmut is bluffé: "Oh my God! I did not believe that it was possible." What would it have says, if it knew that it has five today of them hundred one? Consequently, they will correspond and be seen regularly, until the death of the Master, in 2004. "I cried during hours."
Meanwhile, something changed in the life of Leon Constantiner. It was on September 10, 2001. With a dinner in friends, it meets a very beautiful Czech: Michaela. It is its first voyage to New York: it knows only some English words. It looks it with fear. "This type monopolized me during all the evening. It spoke without stop. I with my was promised in marriage. Leon had any to only make. I was certain that it was one of the clones of the killer of women in American Psycho, that I had just read."
Leon knows that it is the woman of its life. But the following day, September 11, following the attacks of the morning, Michaela disappears. Like insane, Leon seeks it everywhere. It reappears a few weeks later of Miami, where it took refuge. Leon Will allure Michaela. They will not separate any more. Sentimental Bluette can be, but from this meeting is born the third collection: that of the mode.
Michaela adores Penn, Bourdin, Sieff, Chris von Wagenhein, that it makes him discover: a world as much in charge of sensuality and erotism. Leon buys again. It is all the more easy as it is the only one at that time to be been interested in it and to have the means of them: "the majority of the museums and the large collectors were never interested in the photograph of mode. It is deplorable. It is probably the best reflection of our company."
In six years, Leon Constantiner accumulates the main part of the icons of the mode. "To be the first is a formidable orgasm. That changed these two last years. A new race of collectors was born. Rather hunters: investors of Wall Street, which buy works of Gursky or Serrano, like trophies of bear or elephants that they make empailler and that they expose on their walls. This market will not last."
In the apartment that they will leave soon, before the birth of the baby, a hundred photographs are exposed, which change with the liking of moods. Day before yesterday evening, their living room was a vault devoted to Penn and Newton. With the last visit of Helmut, in this living room there were only its large naked. It photographed the couple in front of its works. It never sent its images.
