The Sins of Helmut Newton

Helmut Newton portrayed sex differently from the Playboy magazine version. S&M tainted photos versus airbrushed farm girls, however Hugh Hefner recognized the Berlin-born photographer's talent and hired Newton to shoot soft-core pictorials for Playboy, including pictorials of Nastassia Kinski and Kristine DeBell. His true vision of sexuality will always be renowned for its departure point being far beyond most people's ken of fetishism.

Me too, but only because the lingerie looks so expensive.

He was a god and rightfully his ashes were buried next to Marlene Dietrich at the St├Ądtischen Friedhof III in Berlin.

Schlafen gut, Helmut.
