“This man-woman ambiguity has always fascinated me,” wrote Helmut Newton about this famous 1979 photograph for French Vogue, just one of the extraordinary photos in his 1984 book, “Women Without Men.” Newton often photographed men and women together, only the men are women dressed up as men. “The illusion must be as perfect as possible, to try and confuse the reader,” the controversial photographer said at the time.

One of the witty photos Helmut Newton photographed in 1973 for the one and only late-lamented British Magazine, Nova, the magazine that inspired me for decades. I wrote the press release and bio for his great 1984 book, “World Without Men” and this is one of the photos I had to caption. (He writes about many of his photos in his book, and some of what he says I quote under some of the photos.)   For more on Helmut Newton, click here:

Iconic Fashion photo by Helmut Newton for American Vogue, 1974.  Two girls dancing in Maui, Hawaii.  I always loved this photo.  Everything about it.  Divine perfection.

“Fashion pictures rarely have any logic. Each one is a moment without a beginning or an end,” said Helmut Newton.  He warns: “You mustn’t take my pictures too seriously. Don’t look for a message, because there isn’t one.”   More from Helmut Newton’s 1984  provocative thriller of a book, Women Without Men, click
