Alice Springs (June Newton)

On my trip to Berlin I also went to see the Helmut Newton Foundation because I really admire his work. The had an exhibition of Alice Springs also known as June Newton on view and I was completely blown away by her work. She was born in Melbourne, Australia and used to be an actress before she started  with photography. Her portraits shoots are extremely capturing and fascinating. She captures more than juts the picture of someone, she captures his/her personality. I wandered around the exhibition for something like three hours looking at each of them multiple times. As Helmut Newton’s wife her Oevre is probably sort of is in his shadow but really deserves more recognition.The exhibition in Berlin is already over but if there is one with her coming up I would highly recommend checking it out.
