Fotografiska Museet, Stockholm, Sweden. June 2013.

Was able to catch the special Helmut Newton exhibit at the Fotografiska museum in Stockholm last year–a feat since we almost never luck into any sort of good timing on these trips! I wasn’t too familiar with him and his work beforehand, but after going through the exhibit, I realized I knew the work before I knew the photographer.

“I still believe that the perfect fashion photograph is a photograph that does not look like a fashion photograph. (It) looks like a movie, a media portrait, maybe a souvenir shot, maybe a paparazzi shot.”

“I love vulgarity. I am very attracted by bad taste–it is a lot more exciting than that supposed good taste which is nothing more than a standardized way of looking at things… If the art world rejects me, all I can say is, ‘Good luck to the world of art.’ If I look for a real point of view, I’m not going to start by looking at what art will accept so I can conform to that. That’s why… sadomasochism still seems interesting to me today. I always carry chains and padlocks in my car trunk, not for me but for my photos.”
