It exhibits photographs by the famous German-Australian photographer Helmut Newton and puts them in the context of interwar photography and compares them with the work of his contemporaries. Besides other events dedicated to the centenary of Meda Mládková, this exhibition project is in line with the exhibition programme of the Museum Kampa focusing on presenting personalities associated with lifestyle and fashion, which were crucial for Meda Mládková’s design projects in Washington. The exhibition is divided into four sections, presenting step-by-step Newton’s sources of inspiration (Erwin Blumenfeld, František Drtikol, Horst P. Horst, George Hoyningen-Huene, etc.) and his most prolific creative period from 1950 to 2000. The exhibition also includes works by Newton’s contemporaries (for example, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, etc.). The exhibition is crowned by the section entitled “Czech Traces”, where a selection of works by Tono Stano and Gabina Fárová from the late 1980s and early 1990s is presented (they both contributed to Newton’s making of several of his photographs while in Prague in 1988).
