Helmut Newton: The Bad and the Beautiful
A grand master of fashion photography, Helmut Newton was elegant, playful, inventive and provocative . Berlin was his city and he was a child of Berlin's Golden Twenties.
On the occasion of Helmut Newton's 100th birthday in 2020, Gero von Boehm's documentary HELMUT NEWTON - THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL not only tells the touching life story of the Berlin-born Jewish photographer, but also takes a special look at his at times controversial work.
We meet not only Newton himself and his critic Susan Sontag, but also some of the famous women he photographed, including Claudia Schiffer.
