The Helmut Newton Foundation has opened a new exhibit, in collaboration with Carla Sozzani‘s foundation – Fondazione Sozzani. The new exhibit opened 1 June, and is entitled, “Between Art & Fashion: Photographs from the Collection of Carla Sozzani”.
“Carla Sozzani, former editor-in-chief of the Italian Elle and Vogue magazines [and sister of Franca Sozzani], has collected photographs for many years. Since 1990, she has also exhibited these works at her gallery in Milan, in close cooperation with numerous internationally renowned photographers – including Helmut Newton,” shared the Helmut Newton Foundation. “The close friendship between Carla Sozzani and Helmut Newton now leads to the show of Sozzani’s multi-faceted collection at the Helmut Newton Foundation.”
Over 200 photographs will be on display with some telling a single story while others, as a group, tell a story.
The Foundation added, “This selection is not about completeness, but authenticity and visualization, and the quality of autonomous and representative images.”
There will be work on display from Paolo Roversi, Sarah Moon, Bruce Weber, Newton and more and includes original prints, contact sheets and photos documenting the joint fashion shoots of Sozzani and the photographer.
Helmut Newton Foundation’s “Between Art & Fashion: Photographs from the Collection of Carla Sozzani” exhibit runs through 18 November 2018. Read more at helmutnewton.com.
