Helmut Newton is a still photographer known for his innovative fashion photography of glamorous women, and who has also made a name for himself for his black-and-white nude photographs of female celebrities. His groundbreaking fashion photos appeared on the cover of Vogue in the 1950's and '60s. He is also somewhat infamous because of his reputedly quite huge ego. This documentary features interviews with some of his most famous models, including Catherine Deneuve, Charlotte Rampling and Sigourney Weaver, and with less well-known women.
