Context is everything. In the spirit of artistic relativism, Taschen is reprinting Pages from the Glossies, a book of Helmut Newton photos as they initially appeared in magazines, from Vogue and Elle to Queen and Stern, between 1956 and 1998. Which is to say, these images — many of which have acquired iconic status — remain true to their source, retaining all the accoutrements of their original glory: headlines, text, captions, and so on.
In tandem, the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin will present blowups from the softcover book beginning December 4, 2015, showcasing more than 230 magazine pages.
