Photographs from the Collection of Carla Sozzani

Carla Sozzani, former editor-in-chief of Italian Elle and Vogue, has been collecting photographs for many years. Since 1990, she has also exhibited many of these works in her Milan gallery in close cooperation with internationally renowned photographers, including Helmut Newton, whom she showed four times: “Ritratti di donna” in 1993, “Impressions, Polaroids” in 1996, “Us and Them” in 1999, together with Alice Springs, and “Yellow Press” in 2003. The personal friendship between Sozzani and Newton led to the current presentation of her multifaceted photography collection at the Helmut Newton Foundation. “Between Art & Fashion” not only features numerous icons, it also offers some surprises. Following venues in Paris and Switzerland, it is now being shown for the first time in Germany, in a new arrangement. In thematic response to the exhibition location, some of the photographers are represented with only a single print, others with a small group of works.
On display in June’s Room, on the occasion of June Newton’s ninety-fifth birthday, who worked under the pseudonym Alice Springs, are approximately thirty never-before-shown portraits, selected from the foundation’s collection.
