German-born photographer Helmut Newton created some of the most outré fashion and celebrity images of the 1980s and ?90s, and now he?s the subject of not one but two hot photo shows.
Newton?s magazine shoots often brought him to Los Angeles. (He also wintered at the Chateau Marmont, where he died in 2004.) During a work trip in 1979, three young photographers at Art Center College of Design stalked their idol to get him to look at their work; Newton ended up using them as assistants.
Today those shooters--George Holz, Mark Arbeit and Just Loomis--are featured in ?Three Boys from Pasadena? at their alma mater. The sprawling show, complete with huge black-and-white images by the protégés, Polaroids from Newton?s shoots and more, was curated by June Newton, Helmut?s widow.
Over on North Highland, the new Perry Rubenstein Gallery keeps the Newtonian love flowing with its inaugural show, ?Sex and Landscapes.? This exhibition of 40 huge black-and-white and color prints focuses on the master?s distinctive Valkyrie females--unclothed but for their skyscraper heels--gamboling across lush lawns and silken interiors.
We?re loving these images of strong, sexy women in sylvan surroundings and taking all our friends to see these images of magazines past.
