i found an old helmut newton book at my office. i pounced on it and ran away, much like i do at the thrift store. even though no one was challenging me for it, also much like the thrift store. i've always loved his images and this was a small collection of his most iconic. it hits all the helmut high notes: boobs, voyeurism, sapphic lovin' and celebrity portraits. i've included a few here, my favorite being a portrait of a young karl lagerfeld looking h-o-t!
karl lagerfeld, 1973
tied up torso, 1980
woman examining man, 1975 (love this one!)
saddle I, 1976 (click here for saddle II if you're curious, i know i was)
