For me, it begins and ends with Helmut Newton.
Really though, for me, there isn’t.
One of the most influential photographers of all time, Netwon was nothing short of a genius. He specialised in highly sexualised, high stylised shots – taking influence from sado-machisim, religion and art. Erotic and strange and all round fantastic, Helmut Newton is pretty much my favourite photographer. You can see his influence everywhere today – things that are considered fresh and raw and all those other fancy fashion adjectives….Helmut Netwon was turning it out in the 60’s. He pretty much worked for everyone – British Vogue in the 50s followed by French Vogue,Harper’s Bazaar and Playboy in the 60s. I know this has turned in to a bit of a love letter for Newton, and in a way it is. For me, it begins and ends with Helmut Newton.

Everything else is just white noise.
