Helmut Newton

is the doyen of fashion’s dark side, a photographer who has fundamentally changed the terms of the fashion image. Over the last forty years he has brought a unique mixture of style, sex, and theater to fashion photography and has shaped not only magazine imagery, but fashion itself.

Helmut Newton (1920-2004) was one of the most influential fashion photographers of all time. Born in Berlin, he arrived in Australia in 1940 and married June Brunell (a.k.a. Alice Springs) eight years later. He achieved international fame in the 1970`s while working principally for French Vogue, and over the next three decades his celebrity and influence continued to grow. Eschewing studios for the most part, Newton preferred to shoot in the streets or in interiors. His mixture of controversial scenarios, bold lighting, and striking compositions came to form his signature look. In 1990 he was awarded the “Grand Prix National” for photography; in 1992 was awarded by the German government “Das Grosse Verdienstkreuz” for his services to German culture and was appointed “Officer des Arts, Lettres et Sciences” by S.A.S. Princess Caroline of Monaco. In 1996, he was appointed “Commandeur de l`Ordre des Arts et des Lettres” by Philippe Douste-Blazy, the French Minister of Culture. Working and living in close companionship with his wife until his death at 83, through his last click of the shutter he continued to be as distinctive and influential as ever.

Visuddha, or Throat, Chakra

The blue of this energy center spins its truth in our throat, helping us to be authentic in the way we live our lives. The throat chakra is where we communicate, where we are able to openly share our life perspective. Part of speaking truthfully involves carefully considering our words and the effect they will have once they have been spoken, causing us to consciously choose what we say to others. This, however, does not mean that we bottle our words up inside. It means that we try to look at all perspectives and find a respectful way to present our voice. Be clear, ask for what you want.

I wish i could write you, as a poem, and allow the rest of the world to feel what i feel for you.

I will share my heart just so they could experience true happiness about

I may need to freeze time so my mind can catch up with my heart.

maybe i'll freeze my heart to keep my feelings in place

Your like a summer breeze captured in a jar. The jar is my heart.

I'll inhale piece of you whenever i need strength.

Kind of like, a second wind.

I paint pictures of your smile on my lids every time i close my eyes

And all of this is because i recognize the beauty in you.

I'd use your tears to quench my thirst.

I'd use your scent to find my way home

I'd use the light of your soul to capture me from the dark corners of my mind

This is Beauty : Get acquainted
