Helmut Newton has been a long time admirer of mine in the photography department. Not literally in a department, but I guess you can say that I am absolutely amazed by his work. The man behind the lens is a pure genius. Some months ago, I watched a short documentary about him where his wife June followed him on set and filmed Helmut while he shot naked women all day in provocative positions. Although he is gone, his work is still alive through many grainy black & white photographs.

Lastly, Helmut's iconic 1975 photo of le smoking, YSL tuxedo suit for women. A very empowering photo and ensemble.
