A beautifully produced publication reproducing, through quality photo lithographs, 24 of Helmut Newton's finest images from his early career. The images have been chosen by Newton personally and reflect his best work from the 1970s. Each image captures the powerful, sexual and modern woman, the leitmotif of Newton's work.
