Helmut Newton

It's that I don't like white paper backgrounds. A woman does not live in front of white paper. She lives on the street, in a motor car, in a hotel room.More Helmut Newton [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I like photographing the people I love, the people I admire, the famous, and especially the infamous. My last infamous subject was the extreme right wing French politician Jean-Marie Le Pen.More Helmut Newton [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

In the photographs themselves there's a definite contrast between the figures and the location - I like that kind of California backyard look; clapboard houses, staircases outdoors.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My job as a portrait photographer is to seduce, amuse and entertain.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

What I find interesting is working in a society with certain taboos and fashion photography is about that kind of society. To have taboos, then to get around them that is interesting.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have always avoided photographing in the studio. A woman does not spend her life sitting or standing in front of a seamless white paper background. Although it makes my life more complicated, I prefer to take my camera out into the street... and places that are out of bounds for photographers have always had a special attraction for me.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The desire to discover, the desire to move, to capture the flavor, three concepts that describe the art of photography.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am very attracted by bad taste-it is a lot more exciting than that supposed good taste which is nothing more than a standardized way of looking at things,More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Some people`s photography is an art. Mine is not. If they happen to be exhibited in a gallery or a museum, that`s fine. But that`s not why I do them. I`m a gun for hire.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The point of my photography has always been to challenge myself, to go a little further than my Germanic discipline and Teutonic nature would traditionally permit me to.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In my vocabulary there are two bad words: art and good taste.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The first 10 000 shots are the worst.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It began when I was so ill that there was a good chance of dying. I promised myself that if I survived I would never again pander to a magazine's requests or follow the ideas of art directors. I would only make images which were personal, which arose out of my own life.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I hate good taste. It's the worst thing that can happen to a creative person.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The photographs don't arouse me. All I can think about is the hard work it took to make them.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Some people's photography is an art. Not mine. Art is a dirty word in photography. All this fine art crap is killing it already.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Technically, I have not changed very much. Ask my assistants. They'll tell you, I am the easiest photographer to work with. I don't have heavy equipment. I work out of one bag.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There must be a certain look of availability in the women I photograph. I think the woman who gives the appearance of being available is sexually much more exciting than a woman who's completely distant. This sense of availability I find erotic.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
They often ask me to shoot for them. But I say no. I think an old guy like me ought not take pages away from young photographers who need the exposure.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Photography is 10% inspiration and 90% moving furniture.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My women are always victorious.More Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There are two dirty words in photography, one is art, the other is good tasteMore Helmut Newton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
