One could use any number of adjectives to describe the most notorious fashion photographers extraordinary career and lasting legacy. But, now, in his own words, comes a retrospective of all his greatest and some of his most erotically charged work. World Without Men is a selection of Newtons fashion editorials featuring women only and re-released accompanied with journal entry style texts by the great man himself. Documenting what was probably the most exciting part of his career, from the mid-60s to the early 80s, the book includes his most seminal photographs in all their glory.
Imposing and provocative nude portraits such as an African woman cradling a white baby in Dakar and a woman fleeing a landing plane show Newtons vision to not shy away from the shock factor. Indeed, that was how he made his name. His visions may not seem too controversial now but he was undoubtedly very much ahead of his time.
Despite initial criticism, from the esteemed likes of the Editor of French Vogue no less (Ladies, Helmut, do not lean against lampposts) he soon won over his adversaries and garnered international acclaim. This fresh take on one of the first books he ever published offers a new and rare insight into his creativity and his genius, while helping to explain the ground-breaking influence he had on fashion photography. Providing anecdotal and descriptive accounts of the circumstances of some of his seminal shoots, on every page is evidence of his ground-breaking vision; a vision that still resonates in the pages of Vogue today.
