erotic and mysterious but, still

Frames from the Edge is a wonderful display of Helmut Newton's breath taking fashion, nude, commercial and portrait photography. Besides the thousands of outstanding still photographs that are shown, the documentary is conventionally narrated but grounded with substantial interviews of both Helmut himself and many other subjects, friends and critics capturing how and why and who the photographs are, when they are not rooted in his idiosyncratic methods of capturing a moment. I found it flipping around on the TV at 3 in the morning and couldn't tear myself from the tube until it had finished. I am a photographer but none the less it is fascinating to learn what a photographer goes through to create a print in which he has invisioned before the actual shoot. And, I think you'll find the erotic subject matter (of most of his photographs), not only, well, erotic, but after a while you almost become desensitized to the nudity but in an exhilerating way because you really do find yourself seeing the nude in term of texture and shape, light etc...well until near the end we see the setup and shooting session of a woman in the act of riding the back fin of an old 50's black cadillac. hmmm, well, i still think that you'll enjoy his photography, and boy do you see a lot of it. fantastic stuff.

In "Frames From The Edge" - Newton travels from Berlin, to Paris, to Los Angles in order to photograph celebrities and fashion models (all of them strictly female). All of Newton's photography is well-noted for containing strong elements of kink, fetish, erotica, and yes, even soft-core porn. *Note* - In 2004 - Helmut Newton (84 at the time) died of heart failure.
