Poolside Glamour: Helmut Newton’s Iconic Shots of Cindy Crawford and Helena Christensen


Helmut Newton’s famed image of Cindy Crawford and Helena Christensen relaxing by the pool in St. Tropez, which appeared in Vogue’s December 1991 issue, epitomizes the photographer’s distinctive approach of creating sensual, artful visuals with a compelling storyline and featuring women as authoritative figures.

Newton, despite his self-identification as a “gun for hire”, made significant contributions to the fashion industry, exhibiting his work in galleries and museums. His photographs of supermodels including Crawford and Schiffer in the 90s and later, helped shape the trajectory of fashion photography and cemented his status as the industry’s patriarch.
