All Hail the King of Kink, Helmut Newton


Helmut Newton remains the lord of the ladies, forever and always.

In our opinion, Newton remains the unrivalled master of photographing the female body.

His obsession with women started early, his father telling him he would end up in the gutter because his prime concerns were girls and photography. We count our lucky stars that this statement was not true for him, or us at Monster Children.

Born into a Jewish family in 1920s Berlin, he fled during Nazi occupation to Singapore, after his father was sent to a concentration camp. A long career photographing for Vogue meant the world got to see some of the most incredible, erotic and S&M inspired images of dangerous and dominant women to ever be captured. Enjoy, and bow down to not only Newton, but the damn powerful babes he caught on film.
