Catalogue Note

‘I have always avoided photographing in the studio. A women [sic] 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, into public and private places, places often inaccessible to anyone but the rich. And places that are out of bounds for photographers have always had a special attraction for me.’ (Helmut Newton, quoted in Helmut Newton: Work, p. 30)
