Helmut Newton

Brigitte Nielsen by Helmut Newton

Today’s birthday boy is photographer Helmut NewtonWikipedia describes Newton as a “prolific, widely imitated fashion photographer whose provocative, erotically charged black-and-white photos were a mainstay of Vogue and other publications.”

Scorpio rules over sex, birth and death — themes that define the work of Newton.  In fact, there might not be a 20th century artist who so readily exhibits the stereotypes associated with his zodiac sign.  Anyone who knows anything about astrology viewing a photo by Newton should be able to guess that Newton is a Scorpio at first glance.  It’s like looking at the Olsen twins and guessing that their zodiac sign is Gemini.  It’s that obvious!
