Helmut Newton’s arresting images of decadence, glamour, and power made him a legend in the world of fashion photography, but his provocative depictions of women also stirred up controversy—was his work a subversive vision of female empowerment, or the very essence of objectification? Tracing his life and career from his childhood in Wiemar-era Germany through his death in 2004, this documentary examines the legacy of a singular image-maker, featuring candid interviews with Anna Wintour, Grace Jones, Charlotte Rampling, Isabella Rossellini, and other women who worked with him.
