Helmut Newton in Paris: at last !

Not since the 1984 retrospective at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, organized by Jean-Luc Monterosso, has France seen a substantial Helmut Newton exhibition. Sectarian skulduggery and ego trips undid a planned donation to the Jeu de Paume and led to the departure of the Helmut Newton Foundation to Berlin. Thank you June Newton, Xavier Moreau, Jérôme Neutres and Manuel Bamberger, the retrospective we’ve been waiting for opens today in Paris.
