HELMUT NEWTON: the big Swedish, German, and American girls came on the scene in the ‘80s. They were built like truck drivers, which is the look that I like. It was the heyday of the super models like Cindy Crawford — Cindy had a great quality. Then it went back to this kind of zonked-out, anorexic girl in the early ’90s.
Great thread! Helmut Newton is one of my all time favorite photographers. He and his wife Alice Springs were geniuses. They just seemed to do great pics of celebrities like Grace Jones, Dali, Parisinian socialites, and even royals!
ok, i see testino, richardson, klein and even some lachapelle in here... and the thread aint even 1 page long! what a master what makes his photography so great is that he always exhalted women's sexuality, be it sweet, plain candid or even perverse
