Helmut Newton (1920–2004, American) first achieved international fame in the 1970s while working for French Vogue. He transformed fashion photography from a mere photographic report of current styles to an alluring presentation with sets and narrative. Newton preferred to shoot in streets or interiors rather than in studios and is renowned for his striking compositions, bold lighting, and controversial scenarios, that can be attributed to this lifelike portrait of the Pop artist Andy Warhol.
