June Newton, a.k.a. Alice Springs, award-winning actress and photographer, former wife of the late photographer Helmut Newton and President of the Helmut Newton Foundation, died on April 9, 2021, at the age of 97 in her home in Monte Carlo. We mourn the loss of an outstanding person and an internationally recognized photographer.

We will deeply miss her.

Dear friends of Helmut and June,

We would like to thank you very much for all your sympathy and condolences after June’s death. She now rests side by side with Helmut at Friedhof Stubenrauchstrasse in Berlin, so that they are reunited again.

We have included some of the numerous obituaries and letters of condolence together with photographs of June in the permanent exhibition Helmut Newton’s Private Property in order to preserve the memory of an extraordinary woman and photographer. As soon as the museum will reopen, hopefully in early June 2021, this memorial space will be open to all visitors.
