Casa dei Tre Oci presents Helmut Newton. Fotografie. White Women / Sleepless Nights / Big Nudes, for the first time in Venice. The show in collaboration with the Helmut Newton Foundation, is the outcome of a project inspired in 2011 by June Newton, the widow of the great photographer.
The exhibition collects together images from White Women, Sleepless Nights, and Big Nudes, the first three books edited by Newton and published at the end of the 1970s. When selecting the photos, Newton interspersed a sequence, one next to another, of shots that had been commissioned with those he had made for himself, thus constructing a narrative which was a search for style, for the discovery of elegant gestures underpinned by the existence of a further reality, of something that it is up to the viewer to interpret.
