Poolside Glamour: Cindy Crawford and Helena Christensen Shot by Helmut Newton for Vogue, December 1991


Helmut Newton’s iconic photograph of Cindy Crawford and Helena Christensen poolside in St. Tropez, published in Vogue December 1991, perfectly exemplifies the photographer’s signature style of erotic, stylized images with a strong narrative and portrayal women with a sense of power.

Despite his contributions to the fashion industry and his work being exhibited in galleries and museums, Newton self-identified as a “gun for hire” rather than an artist. Throughout the nineties and beyond, Newton’s photographs featuring supermodels such as Crawford and Schiffer helped shape the direction of fashion photography and solidify his reputation as the father of the industry.
