Helmut Newton Museum
Helmut Newton is one of Berlin’s artistic heroes as this eponymous Berlin gallery celebrates. Born in the city in 1920, he revolutionized the world of fashion photography, landing a job as editor for Australian Vogue in the 1950s before becoming famous throughout Europe and the USA for his provocative nudes. In 2004 Newton and his wife June (a.k.a. Alice Springs, a photographer in her own right) donated 1,000 pictures from their portfolio to the Helmut Newton Foundation. Located next to the Zoo station, the ground floor of this museum houses a permanent exhibition called Private Property, displaying the maestro’s personal items and a reconstruction of his study in Monaco. The huge first-floor rooms rotate his photographic works (about 250 at a time), and showcase the works of other photographers and artists. There’s also an excellent bookshop and café.
