This retrospective show of Helmut Newton has been originally conceived for the Grand Palais in Paris in 2012. It was the first presentation of the photographer after his death in 2003 in the French capital where he lived and worked since 1961 for two decades. The exhibition got a record attendance as well as an enormous media response.

Following two additional presentations in Athens and Stockholm, from 1 November 2013 onwards the Berlin-based Helmut Newton Foundation displays the exhibition with more than 200 photographs, among them the essential bodies of work shot between the 1960s and 2000s.

It was an explicit wish of Helmut Newton to provide a forum also for other photographers and artists at his Foundation. Invited by June Newton, the famous American portrait photographer Greg Gorman shows male nudes in ,,June’s Room’’. Gorman’s iconic black and white-portraits of well-known artists, musicians and actors have been published in many international magazines and on their covers.
