Visit the Foam Museum in Amsterdam and experience the work of iconic photographer Helmut Newton. Until September 4 Newton’s photographs are showcased in a retrospective spanning at the Foam Photography Museum. In addition to Newton’s work, attendees will discover an original art installation by Sayuri Chetti created with Wolford yarns and materials.
Wolford has a rich history with Newton. In the mid-1990’s Wolford commissioned photographs from Helmut Newton. The result was a series of iconic shots that would come to define the essence of Wolford. Newton chose Monte Carlo as his setting and with the help of legendary Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue editor Polly Mellen created a striking and unforgettable collection of photographs. His work presented a powerful image of the modern woman: stylish, independent, confident and assertive.
Their shared history made Wolford a natural candidate to sponsor this retrospective celebrating the photography of Helmut Newton.
