A Visit at the Helmut Newton Foundation
In this FotoTV film, curator Michael Harder shares work from June Newton alias Alice Springs at the Helmut Newton exhibit.
A lot of people know that June Newton shot under a pseudonym. But then again there are a lot of people who did not know that June Newton, wife of legendary photographer Helmut Newton, had a successful career shooting under the name Alice Springs. While visiting today, curator Harder takes us through different eras of Alice Spring and her work. There is definitely a resemblance of work style between her work and Helmut Newton’s work, because he taught he how to use a camera. But it was probably on all the photo shoots she shot documentaries of which gave her an insight to Helmut Newton’s world of photography.
Under normal circumstances there is always a “June’s” room. The curator changes out photos periodically depending on theme or content. This interview is good for photographers who want to learn more about the working relationship between Helmut and June Newton and for photographers who are interested in getting to know Alice Springs.
