Museumfor photography loversSince its opening in 2004, theMuseumof Photography in Berlin has been amagnet for photography lovers fromaround the world. The Helmut Newton Foundation occupies the two lower floors of the building and has, for many years, presented its extremely successful permanent exhibition entitled Helmut Newton’s Private Property, as well as solo exhibitions of works of his contemporaries. A diverse exhibition programme is presented here drawn from the wealth of photographic collections, while simultaneously presenting exceptional photographers and outlining important themes from the history of photography. Don’t forget that themuseum is closed onMondays, and that you’ll need a vaccination confirmation certificate to enter. gaining international fame and repute in return, Helmut took fashion to the streets, where he directed his models like the protagonists of paparazzi stories. Newton’s harshest critics argue that he led fashion photography to thegreyzoneofpornography,where ithasremainedtothisday.Thisinevitablyleadsustoonecrucialquestion: in today’s post-#metoo movement world,withitspostulatesofuniversal correctness,wouldsuchanerotomaniacal approach by a photo artist be considered unacceptable? Still, just as it is harsh to judge a work of art beyond the social context in which itwas created, so it is alsodifficult to observe such a rare gift exclusively through the prismof those who are receptive to it. BeforeNewton came along, no one had ever even considered those neglected spaces of our grey everyday existence becoming, through the lens of artistic vision, an impressive backdrop for the theatrical stage of life that imitates art – which is how a greasy garage with visibleindustrialinstallationscanbe more photogenic than the atelier of some Parisian couturier. He had a gift for catching the eyewithhisstrikingminimalistcontrasts, while he unblinkingly observed the exclusive and eccentric life of selectedmembers of the elite, formingthecriterionofunburdened aestheticswhichwould come to rule the jet set in the years that followed. That’swhyeveryonerushedtohavea photosessionwithhim-itwasasign of prestige to have a portrait sporting his signature. Mick Jagger, Salvador Dali, Liz Taylor, David Bowie, CatherineDeneuve... these are just a fewof the sensational subjects who confirmed their aura of untouchability through his lens. His sharp, dark, peculiar and seductive photography take us back to the time of “larger than life” fame - and fromthe ‘reality’ perspective of our digital age, suchplanned exhibitionism proves fascinating with its fearlessness. Newton’s connection with photography as amediumwas fatal, but it birthed an entire history of the (un)seen. Foto:Profimedia.rs/A.Astes/Alamy Foto:Profimedia.rs/PacificPress/ddpUSA me scan
