In his autobiography, titled simply enough Autobiography, Helmut Newton wrote about his love of Los Angeles and the famed Chateau Marmont, his winter home for many years.
He wrote: "I Love my winters in the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood, where June and I have stayed for the last 26 years. I have this fascination for familiar surroundings...The 'Domestic Nudes' series began by my wanting to photograph rooms of the Chateau Marmont that I know so well, but who would look at pictures of empty rooms? So I added naked women."
