Helmut Newton is sitting in a light green chair in his studio on the thirty-third floor of a high rise in Monte Carlo
with a view of the sea, the Tennis Club and the peninsula where designer Karl Lagerfeld has his house up on high.
The great photographer is dressed completely in white with a cashmere pullover, blue-jeans-style pants,
and tennis shoes.
By the same author as old time religion, The Painted Backdrop: Behind the Sitter in American Tintype Photography
is now available. The previously untold story of 19th century painters and their influence on American photography
during the tintype era. Never before examined in detail, the book contains over 75 rare, unpublished original tintype
photographs from the Jim Linderman collection.
