#8 Helmut Newton
by Allison H.
Helmut Newton was a fashion photographer whose works feature the power of erotism in stylized scenes. Nude body (I notice that he seemed to have a thing for one breast) with high heels on, guns, messy room, these are the elements appeared quite often in his photos. Scenes were setting up to tell more stories by a visually dramatic approach, I like how the details in the scenes are out of focus but they just need to be there to make the picture whole. Overall I like his style a lot and I hope to establish more of this freeness when I’m photographing people.
(This particular image reminds me of vampirism which I always found sexy.)
