Description


Perhaps the most remarkable work, at least for its sensationalist story, in the gallery’s collection is this photograph of super-model Linda Morand posing as Jacqui Kennedy for French Vogue. The two were well known for looking alike and Newton’s satirical reportage of Morand as Kennedy became an iconic Vogue spread. The notorious shoot emphasises the brave, single-mindedness of Helmut Newton’s creativity - his provocative perspective stretching even to the doors of the White House. As the story goes, Richard Avedon sent a telegram to Newton following the shot congratulating him and letting him know that the First Lady was getting ready to sue Newton for defamation of image!

My women are always victorious.
