Item description for Helmut Newton: Private Property (Schirmer Visual Library) by Helmut Newton & Marshall Blonsky...

Through their inimitable mixture of eroticism, subdued elegance and decadent luxury, Newton's pictures reflect in the highest aesthetic quality an obsession with human vanity -- from female exhibitionism to male voyeurism. With technical perfection, an extremely detailed style and a relentless directness, Newton staged the neverending psychodrama that contrasts glamour with the need for admiration, self-confidence with the desire for self-presentation, and Eros with Thanatos. Private Property was originally a three-part portfolio containing 45 b&w photographs. It includes Newton's best work from the period 1972-1983 -- an exquisite assortment of fashion shots, portraits and erotic motifs which are all based on real location and luxurious lifestyles. The entire sequence of pictures from the Private Property portfolio is included in our book which first appeared in 1989.

Reviews - What do customers think about Helmut Newton: Private Property (Schirmer Visual Library)?

Great Photographer  May 23, 2007
Very good collection of great photos.
The size of the book is the only I change, it's a little small
Not So Private  Feb 8, 2006
A number of the photographs in this small collection appear elsewhere in books of Newton's work, e.g., Big Nudes. That said, they do not disappoint, exhibiting the familiar taste for unconventional portrayals and quirky humor that mark his style.

One other thing for potential viewer/readers to keep in mind is that this is a small book, almost identical in size to the (humorously named) Mammoth Book of Illustrated Erotica, which I have reviewed elsewhere.
