Even for Berlin residents, the Helmut Newton Foundation is a well-frequented gallery space for photographers and creatives alike, housing a permanent collection of the photographers’ works and personal artefacts. Located in a beautiful and light-filled building in Berlin-Charlottenburg, what in fact, was previously a former military casino that holds unimaginable heritage and history.

The Foundation presents Helmut Newton’s main body of works that he produced over his lifetime and career, including film footage from personal archives. Over 3 encompassing levels, you are taken through his incredible life and accompanying films and photographs.

Helmut led an incredible life. During his younger years in Berlin he assisted portrait, nude and fashion photographer Else Simon, and his own unique style led to a longterm working relationship with Vogue; French, Australian and US. Although Berlin-born, Newton also spent many years of his life in Australia, Monaco, New York and Los Angeles. He became an Australian Citizen after serving 5 years in the Australian Army, and it was in Australia that he met his wife June, an equally recognised model who began her photographic career on an occasion where Helmut was ill, under the alias ‘Alice Springs’.

Helmut was renowned for popularising the instant polaroid photograph and his extensive portraiture work, notably highlighting females in a male-dominated generation. His unique style of unconventional concepts questioned traditional bounds during his period, with erotically charged and provocative imagery. Such props that assisted in his provocative photographs, are found at the Foundation including his vast range of his cameras and even original personal outfit ensembles.

The gallery space showcases his most iconic and recognisable pieces, alongside some rare and unseen works. In 2003, Helmut donated the vast range of photographs and insisted the Foundation be a “living institution”. It is a rare and unique glimpse at the man, the husband, and the photographer who changed the history of photography.
