Inspiration: Helmut Newton

Charlotte Rampling

Photography by Helmut Newton

I just love the impossibilities of a Helmut Newton photograph. Sex is the subject, always. But it’s often turned upside down or right side up? The women’s legs go on for miles. Cigarettes are put out on nipples. A Helmut Newton lady is as tricky as they come – it’s as though a second agenda lies deep within her that transcends whatever posture she’s in. Maybe she’s thinking about doing the laundry later, or poisoning her husband. You can never really know for sure with these gals. One thing is for sure, they give me major inspo.

What gives you major inspo? Any artists that just really capture and create life the way you imagine it in your mind? Leave a comment below!

    This gives me all the feels, I have loved Helmut Newton for a long time and take great inspiration from his work, especially his images of Leonardo DiCaprio … major hot stuff!!

    I take inspiration from:

    Grace Coddington… she is Vogue, and my fav photographer is Richard Avedon and his portrait work

    Hope you having an amazing week!
