ALICE SPRINGS: THE PARIS MEP SHOW. June Newton. Benedikt Taschen Verlag GmbH, Cologne, 2016. 112 pp. 27 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783836539739 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: When her husband -- who happened to be world-famous photographer Helmut Newton fell sick with flu on the eve of a pressing deadline in 1970 -- it was up to his wife, June, to photograph an advertisement for Gitanes cigarettes. After the barest instruction in lighting and camerawork, June clicked the shutter on a smoking model and ignited her own career behind the lens. Using the pseudonym Alice Springs, June Newton began as a commercial photographer, shooting advertisements for French and international fashion magazines, before exploring portraiture and celebrity via the highlife in Hollywood and lowlife of the L.A. punk scene during the 1980s. She became Helmut's artistic director, collaborating on exhibitions and books as well as developing her own characteristically intense, revealing photography. Coinciding with a major retrospective at the Helmut Newton Foundation which was shown at the Maison Europeenne de la Photographie, this TASCHEN collection celebrates Alice Springs's work with a focus on the glamour and seedy excitement of 1980s Melrose in Los Angeles, as well as some of her most compelling self-portraits and studies of Helmut. Throughout, we celebrate Springs's sensitivity to subjects in composition and her particular skill at capturing the charisma animating a figure or face.
