Alice Springs

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

In 1970, Helmut Newton‘s wife June Newton, started as a photographer under the pseudo Alice Springs. Her husband, then in bed with the flu, teached her how to handle his camera and the light-meter… so she achieved by her own an advertising for the cigarette brand Gitanes. The famous portrait that results is the starting point for her successful career. Since 2005, her  works are regularly exposed to the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin in the room called  June’s Room
