The exhibition features works by Evelyn Hofer, Sheila Metzner, Joel Meyerowitz, and Helmut Newton.

After taking a full-time position with the French edition of Vogue in 1961, the German photographer Helmut Newton worked in parallel for the fashion magazine’s American edition as well. During this time, he produced images in both Europe and the USA. In the 1970s, most of Newton’s American fashion and nude photographs were shot in New York, Las Vegas, Miami, and Los Angeles for various magazines. After 1980, when Helmut and June Newton began traveling regularly to California to spend the winter months at Chateau Marmont, he made numerous portraits of the “famous and infamous” in and around Hollywood for magazines.
