Chances are, if you don't know his legendary name, you've seen the boundary-pushing fashion photography of Helmut Newton, known best for his glamorous nude portraits and high-contrast black and white landscapes.
Opening June 1, 2012, Perry Rubenstein Gallery in Los Angeles will show some of the photographer's iconic images as its inaugural exhibition. Sex and Landscapes will feature works from nearly all of Newton's favorite themes, which span from nude and portrait to fashion and landscape. The late artist's wife June Newton helped select the 40 photographs, many of which were influenced by the couple's frequent stays at Hollywood's Chateau Marmont.
"Having the opportunity to exhibit these images in the city where Helmut Newton lived so richly, worked so creatively and died so tragically—a city that he had always considered to be home, is an honor and a privilege," says Perry Rubenstein.
The gallery will also show two concurrent solo exhibitions this fall from LA-based artist Zoe Crosher and German artist Hans-Peter Feldmann. The Perry Rubenstein Gallery is located at 1215 N. Highland Avenue in Los Angeles.
