Start The Summer At The Helmut Newton Foundation, Berlin!

By: Roman Kozak

This week there is a summer exhibition opening at the Museum of Photography of the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin!

Three brave photographers with very different visions will be presented – Alice Springs (The MEP show),  Helmut Newton (Yellow press) and Mart Engelen (Portraits).

June Newton, well known under the pseudonym Alice Springs, has been having much success with her portraits and will now present them. Knowing that she is famous for her fashion and nude works has already wet my appetite!

Helmut will be reincarnated through this exhibition with “something new from the old-well-known” as there will be unpublished works from 1973 to 2002! These will include his mixed stories such as “self-appropriation”, “Lolita” for Playboy magazine and the scandalous documentary photos of Court proceedings in Monaco that he shot for the Paris Match. After the press from the last Newton exhibition presented with Alice Springs’ “Us and Them” I am excited to see what type of noise the showing will make this time!

As Helmut Newton wanted, his wish will be posthumously fulfilled – in “June’s room” is where you will find the invited works of Amsterdam based photographer Mart Engelen. Engelen publishes a magazine devoted to exclusive photos, and for the exhibition he will debut more than 20 black and white portraits from the contemporary culture scene, inspired by French film Noir.

I’m always excited about furor-style exhibitions, so let’s start this summer on a new note and throw ourselves into the world of art! Let the heat begin!
