Alice Springs Exhibition
The Paris museum presents the second part of the exhibition dedicated to the Australian photographer and wife of Helmut Newton.
In 2012, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie presented Alice Springs, a major retrospective of June Newton’s photography, where we discovered – or revisited – her refreshingly natural portraits of some of the best-known faces in the world, from Billy Wilder, Diana Vreeland and Robert Mapplethorpe to Brigitte Nielsen amongst the others; alongside fashion editorials and advertising campaigns. Today, the Paris museum opens a second exhibition of the photographer’s work, in a mix of images captured since 1975 in black and white and color, from celebrities to the unknown. Discover intimate portraits of her husband, Helmut Newton, alongside their photographer friends (Jacques Henri Lartique, Brassai, Man Ray, Richard Avedon, David Bailey, Ralph Gibson) and stars (Nicole Kidman, Audrey Hepburn, Luciano Pavarotti), as well as new reportage from the 1980s of the American punk and hiphop scene. Sensitive photography, that is resolutely human. Alice Springs at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie until August 23 2015.
