In today’s photo lens, we wanted to share images from Helmut Newton in Prague. Helmut Newton (October 1920 – 23 January 2004) was a German-Australian photographer.
Newton had a unique way of seeing, a groundbreaking vision that completely transformed fashion photography. Even today we can still see his influence in the pages of the greatest fashion magazines.

His style was erotic and he formulated stylised scenes, often with sado-masochistic and fetishistic subtexts. That is why Newton was often referred to as the “King of Kink”. He made his name shooting models in striking, provocative black-and-white photographs for Vogue. Shortly after his photographic style debuted, his works could be seen in Harper’s Bazaar as well.
Here are some of his personal, rare and less seen images from Prague which he took in 1989.
