Helmut Newton, A Gun for Hire
'Helmut always referred to himself as "A Gun for Hire". "Because that is what I am", he said. "When I was young and poor and starting as a photographer, I decided to accept any job that came along... This is a selection of photographs taken from Helmut's commercial work that he did for fashion catalogues, which made him financially independent and enabled him to do the work that made him famous'. - June Newton, 2005
'Helmut was an artist - he transformed the world. He made us see it differently. Just as Oscar Wilde once said of Turner that no one had really seen the London fog before he came along. You could say that before Helmut, we didn't really look in the same way. He changed our way of seeing, and helped us find a sort of hidden truth we didn't know was there. He was, in short, a master'. - Pierre Bergé, US Vogue Memorial Service, Paris, 5th July 2004
