Today we’re hosting another #InStyleVIP competition to celebrate the first pop-up Helmut Newton exhibition in five years in London – Vintage Newton by OnGallery. To celebrate we’re giving away two pairs of tickets to attend the Private View at the opening night in London, on Thursday 26 November!
If you didn’t know, the exhibition is one of the largest of its kind for many years in London and features 26 original vintage images by Newton from 1974-1984, including an eye-catching photograph of Jerry Hall. If you want to get your hands on one of these images, they will also be on sale at the exhibition and online.
Here’s what you need to know about Newton…
Born in Berlin in 1920, Newton was often the subject of controversy due to his sexually charged photography, with critics denouncing him for 'reducing female sexuality to naked bodies and for voyeuristically exhibiting women’s intimacy', but Newton always dismissed the claims, saying that he adored women and that his photographs portrayed female power and strength.
Called a 'prolific, widely imitated fashion photographer' by The New York Times, his images make their mark - whether you agree with his critics or not.
The exhibition takes place at The Showroom Presents, 25 Effie Road, Fulham Broadway, SW6 1EL, and is open to the general public from Thursday 26th to Saturday 28th November, 10am – 6pm. For more information on the exhibition and OnGallery, visit the website on ongallery.com and follow @ongalleryart on Twitter.
