The exhibition

The exhibition “Helmut Newton. Legacy” will be set up at the Ara Pacis in Rome from the 18th of October 2023 to the 10th of March 2024. Over 200 photos will be exhibited together with documents, magazines and videos that illustrate the career of one of the most famous and discussed photographers in history.

Alongside the most emblematic shots by Helmut Newton (some on display for the first time in Italy), it is possible to admire  unpublished images, like the most irreverent fashion shoots.

The public can thus discover the photographer’s creative process, through his polaroids and contact sheets, bringing to light the context from which the inspiration originated, through his statements, publications and archive materials.

The exhibition itinerary is divided into chronological sections, representing different phases of Helmut Newton’s life and career, from his beginnings to the latest years. Each chapter highlights collaborations with designers such as Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent in the 1960s, the revolutionary “Naked and Dressed” series of 1981, and works in the 1990s, including those with major fashion houses such as Chanel and Thierry Mugler.

The great uniqueness of Helmut Newton’s works emerges from the exhibition, some of which have made the history of photography.
