White Women

( 1 )

Overview

White Women, Helmut Newton's legendary first work, appeared more than twenty years ago. With it's superior mixture of aesthetics, technical perfection and bourgeois decadence it has lost nothing of its potency and attractiveness. Newton's work encompasses a wealth of themes, also embodying facets of the mass-media world of glamour, masquerade and show. Using subtle, yet striking images—like those of Paloma Picasso, Veruschka, Elsa Peretti, Karl Lagerfeld, David Hockney, and Charlotte Rampling—Newton embraces the ...

Overview

White Women, Helmut Newton's legendary first work, appeared more than twenty years ago. With it's superior mixture of aesthetics, technical perfection and bourgeois decadence it has lost nothing of its potency and attractiveness. Newton's work encompasses a wealth of themes, also embodying facets of the mass-media world of glamour, masquerade and show. Using subtle, yet striking images—like those of Paloma Picasso, Veruschka, Elsa Peretti, Karl Lagerfeld, David Hockney, and Charlotte Rampling—Newton embraces the delicate, natural beauty of the naked female body. White Women is a masterpiece of erotic visual literature.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In the retained 1976 introduction, a Sotheby's curator calls this German photographer "the grand couturier of fashion photography" whose images "describe a world where money buys a particular brand of erotic liberation." Newton's brief remarks on his personal tastes accompany the 107 color and b&w images. Readers can judge for themselves whether his father's childhood assessment that "...you'll end up in the gutter" is correct. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Extreme Fashion Fantasies Involving Available Women

    Before reviewing this book, let me point out that it contains much female nudity in sexual situations that are sometimes on the hard side of what would be rated 'R' in a motion picture. This book is a reissue of Helmut Newton's first book from the 1970s. The shock value of that work continues in this very well produced volume with images of high reproduction quality featuring carefully posed compositions involving sumptuous fashion and beautiful models. The introduction captures the spirit of the book. 'It is the visual inventiveness that make the images memorable.' Newton peels away respectability from the outer aura of powerful, well-dressed women to show their carnal natures. For example, in one of the first images, he shows a woman wearing a beautiful dress, who is perfectly coiffed. But the dress is totally see-through. She wears it as though it is totally opaque. He expresses these personal visions in his own language in brief paragraphs and through the visual images that often suggest a taste for some 'rough sexual trade' through the use of props and body positions. The settings in the book are mostly at the Villa D'Este on Lake Como in northern Italy, in or around swimming pools on the French Riviera, in powerful cars and limousines, on public streets and in public places, and in hotel rooms and bedrooms. The photographs are all reproduced here in large size with virtually flawless technical details of composition, lighting, and exposure. I have seen many of these images reproduced elsewhere (including the recent retrospective, Helmut Newton Work), but not as well as they are done here. Through the combination of the text, notes, and large size photographs, you can appreciate more of his subtle work here than elsewhere. At his best, fashion, celebrity, and exposure are intertwined in almost inseparable ways. For example, Paloma Picasso appears wearing her own jewelry in a dress by Karl Langerfeld (who is seen on the facing page wearing a similar outfit) from which one shoulder has been peeled away to reveal her left breast, which in turn is artfully obscured behind her left arm. In a famous Newton image on the rue Aubriot in Paris in 1975, one mannish-appearing model sports a suit by St. Laurent in close proximity to a nude model wearing a chapeau by Paulette. The two and the street scene serve to focus attention unerringly on the contrast in clothing and on the clothes themselves. Nicely done! As fine as this book is, I graded the book down one star because many of the photographs fall far below the best in the book. Many of the nudes in and around the swimming pool and in the cars were pretty ordinary, in my estimation. It would have been better to create a shorter version of the book that maintained the high standard of the best fashion work. My favorite images in the book include: Villa D'Este (Woman with riding crop), April 1975 (p. 9) Elsa Peretti in Halston's bunny costume, New York, November 1975 (p. 15) Winnie off the coast of Cannes, 1975 (p. 32) Lisa in Saint-Tropez, 1975 (p. 34) Peter in Saint-Tropez, 1975 (same day) (p. 35) Photograp
