I am really pleased to have discovered on YouTube the documentary about Helmut Newton, Helmut by June, which was filmed by June (Newton's wife) on a portable camcorder throughout the early 90s, and was assembled in 1994. The film offers a fascinating and intimate insight into the work and psyche of perhaps the most famous (and certainly the most infamous) photographer of the 20th century. It is so worth watching: if you have any sort of interest in fashion or photography, I really recommend setting aside an hour to watch the whole thing.
NB. NSFW (obviously!).
Is this a #latepass? Has everyone seen it already? I think it's just brilliant...some of the footage, like when he's shooting Carla Bruni, or Yves Saint Laurent, is positively FASHION GOLD!
