Helmut Newton. Legacy

Ara Pacis Museum, Entrance to the exhibition from Via di Ripetta no. 180

The exhibition traces the life, both human and professional, of a man who is remembered as the author of shots that have made the history of photography, appearing on the most important fashion magazine covers, enriched by a corpus of previously unpublished photographs that reveal lesser-known aspects of his work. 

Some 80 photographs are in fact on display for the first time in this exhibition. 

Complementing the exhibition are testimonies from archive materials such as contact prints and special publications.

Six chronological chapters recount Newton's photographic evolution: from his beginnings in the 1940s and 1950s in Australia to his final years of production, through the 1960s in France, the 1970s in the United States, the 1980s between Monte Carlo and Los Angeles and the numerous shoots around the world in the 1990s.
