Photography

One of my favourite photographers of all time, is Helmut Newton. I (lucidly) remember picking up a newspaper 9 years ago, to read, that he had been killed in a car accident. His cadillac sped out of control and crashed into a wall, in Los Angeles. He was 83, died on January 23, 2004. His black-and-white (risque) images were known throughout the world, appearing in the tabloids and fashion magazines, such as Vogue and Elle. He pushed the boundaries with gender, fashion and art. His most famous photo, the ‘Self Portrait with Wife & Models, 1981’ was valued upto (US)$140,000 apparently auctioned last year at Christie’s London. I can only afford his collections, in books.
