Helmut Newton On His Winter Home In L.A.

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."

National Geographic is experiencing a landmark birthday this year and we're helping them celebrate.

Coming to the Photography Space this October 26 is our exciting next exhibit: The Power of Photography: National Geographic 125 Years. Organized in collaboration with National Geographic magazine, the show celebrates the iconic publication’s 125 year anniversary. From iconic images to portraits; landscapes to natural history, the exhibit will offer a wide range of photographic genres and themes free to the public in a special print and digital exhibition that will include two documentaries. National Geographic magazine is the official journal of the National Geographic Society.

The curation and installation of The Power of Photography departs from previous Photography Space exhibit designs. Mosaics of more than 400 images documenting the history of National Geographic photography from 1888 to the present time will adorn the walls. In addition, an extensive digital installation will showcase 500-plus images. Thirty professional-grade large format LED monitors will be arranged to create video walls throughout the Photography Space galleries. These six video walls, ranging from 12 to 14 feet in width, will present both individual images and photographic essays. Given the volume of photographs on the screens, and a format in which the images loop at different times throughout the galleries, the viewing experience will be unique to each visitor and each visit.

The exhibit will feature an original documentary commissioned by the Annenberg Space for Photography and produced by Arclight Productions that profiles six renowned photographers whose work appears in the October National Geographic issue: Lynsey Addario, Marcus Bleasdale, David Guttenfelder, Abelardo Morell, Joel Sartore and Martin Schoeller. In addition, the Photography Space will also screen a short compilation video comprised of photographers talking about the power of photography and what inspires their work. This compilation will be complemented by a series of longer video interviews with 20 photographers represented in the exhibit and a loop of milestone content videos created over the past several years for the magazine’s digital edition.

The Power of Photography: National Geographic 125 Years opens October 26, 2013 and runs through April 27, 2014.
