About this Artwork

The series “Sleeples Nighte” is a work that goes from 1975-78, a period of transition in which Newton reinvents himself and opens up to the world of fashion, discovering it, opening it up, conquering it and eventually possessing it. The story that is narrated in these great works is that of a photographer in love with photography and in love with women. All these images are the compendium of research strongly desired by Newton that is not only aesthetic, but also has a strong social value, because we must always remember that his work began in the ’70s, when there were major changes that involved men women and sexual behaviors and he was not only a witness but he witnessed it. Newton, in fact, dis never miss the opportunity to propose a naked woman who walks alone on the French streets or in the Chateau d’Aunoy. One reason why Newton is remembered as one of the most prolific photographers of the 20th century, channeling the sensuality and erotic power of his subjects with panache, precision, and impact.

About the Artist

Born in Germany in 1920 to German and American parents, Newton fled to Singapore to escape the Nazis in 1938 where he worked as a photographer before being interned by the British government to Australia. During World War II, Newton became a truck driver for the Australian army, then later married June Browne (or Brunell as she was later known), an Australian actress who later became a photographer under the pseudonym ‘Alice Springs’. Newton regained his career as a photographer in the 50’s and went into partnership with Henry Talbot in 1956. In 1961 Newton settled in Paris where he concentrated on fashion photography with masochistic and fetishistic subtexts and nude studies of women. This marked the beginning of the work that he would become famous for. In later life Newton lived in Monte Carlo and Los Angeles, where he met his death in 2004 when he suffered a heart attack whilst driving and his car hit a wall. He was 84 years old.
