CJP Serves: Helmut Newton
Our friends over at CJP blushed as they stared at his powerful portraits of women in tuxedos.

On Wednesday 20 July, CJP and Foam organize a new edition of CJP Serves: a comprehensive program taking place in Foam’s major summer exhibition Helmut Newton - A Retrospective. Newton's oeuvre is full of strong, sensual women, while men do not, or hardly, play a role in his work. Women rule in Newton's version of the world.

Newton aimed to seduce the viewer and so his controversial work often led to heated discussions. Opponents thought of Newton as misogynistic while others were in awe of the ground-breaking style he established. In the 70s Newton's work was revolutionary and emancipating and went along seamlessly with the free, sexual morality of that time.
