This June Taschen will release the Helmut Newton Polaroids Book. Newton saved his test Polaroids, allowing a privileged and rare chance to see the tests from a selection of his greatest shoots over a period of decades. Put together by his widow, June Newton, his collection captures the magic of Helmut Newton photo shoots as only Polaroids can.
Legend has said that on Newton shoots, if anyone were to ask for one of his Polaroids as a keepsake, (whether you were model, stylist, hair dresser or Paris Vogue editor) he’d ask for cash. Helmut Newton Polaroids have gone for as much as 50K.
