HELMUT NEWTON AND ALICE SPRINGS: US AND THEM. Reprint. Benedikt Taschen Verlag GmbH, Cologne, 2016. Original edition published 1999 {Worldwide 102021}. 200 pp. 27 x 25 cm. ISBN 9783836524674 In English.
Publisher's description: Two cameras, one couple: Helmut Newton and Alice Springs turn the lens on their love and their life. Us and Them is an ode to partnership and art. First published in 1999, it gathers photographs by Helmut Newton and his wife, the actress and photographer June Newton, who worked under the pseudonym Alice Springs. The collection is arranged into five sections, alternating the gaze between Newton and Spring's own tender internal world of Us, and the glamorous encounters of their social and professional milieu - Them .The Us sections of the book reveal the pair's portraits of each other and themselves, as startling in their moments of vulnerability as they are infectious in their episodes of joy. We see the pair pensive, weary, or roaring with laughter. Alice photographs Helmut on set with his models, in the shower, and in stilettos. Helmut captures Alice in the kitchen, in costume, and hanging up the washing in the nude. Along the way, we are alerted to the frailties and intimacies that make up a long-term partnership and that coexisted with the high-voltage glamour for which Newton is renowned. The particular power of the pictures is to locate as much magnetism and beauty in an aging, ailing partner (Helmut in the hospital, Alice adjusting her spectacles), as in the pristine physiques of a Newton fashion shoot.
