NEW­TON ’S LAW

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Fashion -

In tan­dem with the re­turn of Hel­mut New­ton’s Pages From The Glossies, the Mu­seum für Fo­tografie, or Mu­seum of Pho­tog­ra­phy, in Ber­lin is hold­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion in his hon­our. Pre­sented as fac­sim­i­les of the orig­i­nal mag­a­zine pages in which they had ap­peared, the ex­hib­ited im­ages re­flect New­ton’s ca­reer in fash­ion pho­tog­ra­phy be­tween 1956 and 1998 – a fas­ci­nat­ing win­dow of time when he was highly cov­eted by hun­gry pub­lish­ers and mag­a­zine edi­tors the world over. Blown up to gi­gan­tic pro­por­tions, the im­ages re­tain their orig­i­nal head­lines, page num­bers, com­men­tary, and cap­tions. This com­pre­hen­sive ex­hi­bi­tion is ac­com­pa­nied by the work of an­other pho­tog­ra­pher, Greg Gor­man, who pre­vi­ously com­ple­mented New­ton’s ‘Big Nudes’ in­stal­ment in 2013. Un­til May 22 at the Mu­seum für Fo­tografie, Ber­lin. www.smb.mu­seum/en Cap­tured in Mel­bourne for Paris, 1973
