Tomb of Talma, 1977 © Helmut Newton

I had found out that I did not function well in the studio, that my imagination needed the reality of the outdoors. I also realized that only as a fashion photographer could I create my kind of universe and take up my camera in the chic place and in what the locals called la zone, which were working-class districts, constrution sites, and so on. To work for French Vogue at that time was wonderful: Who else would have published these nudes or the crazy and sexually charged fashion photographs which I would submit to the editor in chief?

He loves big women: statues, paintings, sculptures, live ones, especially live ones; because he can manipulate them…can control every muscle in their bodies.

I like girls who are just starting. They have not been formed, they have no routine, they have not been in front of the camera.

Helmut Newton | The Gunfighter Pose

You know, I loved always Gary Cooper as a gunfighter in High Noon. They are always ready to draw. They are always like this… Which means that the outline of the body, there is daylight behind them. When you have your hands there [on the body], you don’t see the outline of the body, the little waist, the big shoulders. So my models often stand exactly, or what I hope will be the gunfighter’s stance.

Helmut Newton | Fuck you money

Helmut Newton said that looking back, he admitted that he had sold his soul “like a whore.” He badly needed and wanted the money for years. It was only until he had enough of what he called “fuck you money” in the bank that he could do what he wanted to on shoots and pursue his own projects.
