Oh do I love Newton, that wicked little sense of humor, I can't help but love his photographs. When you look at them, to me, it seems like you are looking at an inside joke, or something more personal. Like the pictures of Nadja wearing 5 inch heels and a leg brace walking up the stairs, its like a personal joke between you and the photo, not a blatant slapstick joke, but like a personal curl your lip chuckle, kinda like you are finding out something you're not supposed to know. One of my all time favorites

The book which came with its own stand is called Sumo.... it weighs 66 lbs, and is $6,500....making it the most expensive/biggest book ever made!

One of Newton's images in post #11 by ChrissyM ... Rue Aurboit, featuring Yves Saint Laurent's "le Smoking" suit for French Vogue, Sept. 1975 has a companion image that was used in the US ... we being more conservative in the States. This is it:

http://www.garfnet.org.uk/new_mill/s...egs/newton.jpg
Vibeke 1975 by Helmut Newton.jpg





Now I'm going a bit off topic ... sort of ... because this image means a lot to me, personally and I have a related story to share ... for anyone who is interested. Hope the mods don't mind.

The model here is Vibeke and she still models for Ford L.A., Classic Division and she's in her early 50's. I had the opportunity to style her for a portfolio shoot ... you can see our images on Ford. She is sooo cool ... she let us play around and do an homage to Newton .... just for our own pleasure. As I was buttoning up her collar, she said to me ... "You know, Bette .... I can't beleive that I did this in that street in Paris for Helmut almost 30 years ago, to the day!" I asked her if she felt old ... and she just smiled ..... What a gracious and classy lady! And BTW ... she's had no surgery... she just still looks great.

Here's the "homage" and two other shots of her, from our shoot in May 2005. And yeah ... it's not nearly a Newton ... but it was cool doing it with his model.

DISCLAIMER: These ar NOT Helmut Newton, below!

Photography: Leslie Delano
Hair and Makeup: Tanja Hrast
Styling: Bette Tilch
Model: Vibeke, Ford L.A.

Notice: We decided NOT to have her hold a cigarette this time.

I don't know if this is appropriate for this thread, but when did he last photograph Daria? Or if she wasn't the last girl, who was it and when?
