The exhibition – promoted by the Municipality of Milano-Cultura and produced by Palazzo Reale and Marsilio Arte, in collaboration with the Helmut Newton Foundation of Berlin – is curated by Matthias Harder, director of the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin, and by Denis Curti, and traces the entire career of one of the most loved and discussed photographers of all time through 250 photographs, magazines, documents and videos.

It proposes, alongside the most iconic images, a corpus of unpublished photographs, presented for the first time in Italy, which will reveal many lesser-known aspects of Newton's work, with a specific focus on the most unconventional fashion shots. Polaroids and contact sheets will also provide information on the creative process of some of the iconic motifs on display, while special publications, archival materials and statements by the photographer will help the visitor understand the context in which the inspiration of this extraordinary artist was born.

In a journey divided into chronological chapters, visitors will be able to go through all the phases and evolutions of Newton's life and career, from the beginning to the last years of production.

The exhibition is part of the Milan Art Week (April 11th -16th 2023), the widespread event coordinated by the Municipality of Milan - Department of Culture, in collaboration with miart, the international modern and contemporary art fair in Milan.
