Helmut Newton is definitely one of my hugest inspiration ever.
I was stunned from the very first touch with his photography and his life.
I was reading and watching everything I could get about him. I couldn't get enough.
I was eagerly studying from this materials. The way he directs his shootings, the way he talks and thinks, his humor and jokes.
Everything what I could find back then was so meaningful and important to me. He became my mentor and adviser in a special way.
My work is very often compared with his photography. I take it as a compliment. I respect the past and I am reflecting it by my path and exploration to create something new.
Every time I am in Berlin I go visit Helmut Newton Foundation.
And every time I discover something new and exciting again and again. Every time his work surprises and enriches me... Thank you Helmut!
List with some videos and interviews about the master. Enjoy!
