Houston hosts the U.S. premiere of an exhibition featuring the entire contents from Helmut Newton´s first three groundbreaking books:White Women (1976), Sleepless Nights (1978), and Big Nudes (1981). The 205 photographs in these books established Newton´s reputation as the supreme recorder of female identity, and as a master craftsman of the photographic medium. A complete set of the prints in the exhibition has been acquired by the MFAH.
Newton (1920–2004) survived Nazi Germany as a self-supporting, nomadic teenager to emerge a world-renowned photographer. His images moved beyond the accepted standard of how females could
be portrayed. The prints on view in Helmut Newton: White Women • Sleepless Nights • Big Nudes were made specifically for the exhibition and are large-scale—some reaching nearly 8 x 8 feet. Contributing to the accompanying catalogue are designer Karl Lagerfeld and Vogue editor Anna Wintour.
