Helmut Newton’s photography has helped sell millions of copies of upmarket fashion magazines; at the same time these same glossies provided an international platform for uniquely talented photographers. When a great photographer is at work, you imagine that every frame will be a work of art. For some, that might even be true, but for Helmut Newton (1920-2004), who captured some of the most memorable images ever published in the glossy fashion magazine, this was...

Creative use of light, dark and shade—this was the magic that made masterpieces when the camera was in the hands of Horst.  Horst’s career spanned 60 years, and long before the end of that career he was already considered one of the twentieth century’s greatest fashion photographers. But Horst’s interest went far beyond shooting fashion images—he was a master of light, composition and atmospheric illusion, who could conjure a world of sensuality and sophistication. Over...

The face of a young Mick Jagger peers out from beneath the full fringe of a hooded fur coat. Staring straight into the camera, pouting unabashedly, the Rolling Stones singer and rock and roll icon is instantly recognisable. The striking composition of this black and white image, captured by David Bailey, has become as iconic as Jagger himself.
