WANTED: Helmut Newton, Larry Clark & Ralph Gibson
Helmut Newton Foundation

The work of Helmut Newton is again juxtaposed with another set of good ol' boys in photography; following the exhibit "Men, War and Peace," which featured Newton's images alongside those of James Nachtwey and David LaChapelle, "WANTED" brings the works of Newton's private circle of friends to a trio, American photographers Larry Clark and Ralph Gibson.

The central exhibition space is dedicated to Larry Clark's famous 1970s "Teenage Lust" and "Tulsa" series, which document intimate worlds with ground-breaking realism. Ralph Gibson's stylized, surreal and formally abstract images speak to Newton's own approach and, for the first time, on view are Newton's self-published "Helmut Newton's Illustrated" magazines, irregularly produced between 1987 and 1995.

A cross between boyish fun and sophisticated professionalism, "WANTED" unites photographers who broke the rules and tested boundaries with the audacity of Wild West criminal fugitives, as the exhibition title ironically suggests.
