About this Item

First Edition - American. Oversize art book. Fine copy in a fine dust jacket. A collection of provocative full-page black & white nude photographs of women by Helmut Newton, including five of body-builder Lisa Lyon. Fine copy in a fine dust jacket. From the insightful introduction by fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld: ŇIt used to be said of certain painters that they were the painters of women. Helmut is certainly the photographer of women, but the pictures he takes of them are not necessarily what men expect. In his way her has changed, or at least profoundly influenced, the erotic fantasies of our time. And his influence has gone further than he ever intended, making hi a kind of sorcererŐs apprentice, who has stirred up an unstoppable brew of contemporary images. The secret of its potency lies in a mixture, which is hard to define, of distance and availability in his women. You canŐt call his models girls even though they are often scarcely twenty. His camera and his photographs depict only adult, free and independent creatures, women who, without having to look like Gayle Olinekova [a marathon champion] or Lisa Lyon, show neither weakness or doubt.Ó.
