Helmut Newton, Grand Palais

Fashion photography that is nothing like fashion photography according to Newton's theory on these matters.

Excellent show of magazine work, the big nudes series, celebs and shoes, especially shoes. Interestingly the big nudes were inspired by looking at photographs of German terrorists - strange, the influences on art. Popular show - there was a long queue -  and probably not for young children as there's rather a lot of 'soft' semi-S&M and it's better to avoid the kinds of questions kids ask. Icons worth seeing again though were Charlotte Rampling, Elizabeth Taylor, Catherine Deneuve and a very young Karl Lagerfeld, yes, he was once young.
