Newton shot a number of pictorials for Playboy, including pictorials of Nastassja Kinski and Kristine DeBell. Like Norman Parkinson, Richard Avedon, and Irving Penn, newton became one of the most influential and talented photographers shooting for Vogue. Perhaps his biggest supporter and promoter was his wife June, who established her own career as a photographer under the pseudonym April Springs. You could tell that from one half of his fashion oeuvre, those en plein air pictures set in and around swimming pools, on the white-hot beaches of St Tropez or Nice or Cannes, in and around Paris's municipal parks, on whitewashed rooftops and sun-bleached balconies. The other half was unwaveringly crepuscular: shuttered hotel suites, underground carparks, dark street corners lit by the phosphorescence of fin-de-si├Ęcle street lamps.

Here he was in thrall to his hero Brassaï, chronicler of Paris after dark, a thrilling cityscape of insomniacs, brothels and illicit drinking clubs. As a teenager, Newton worked as an apprentice to theater photographer Yva in Berlin. He fled increasing Nazi oppression in Germany in 1938, shortly after Kristallnacht, and worked in Singapore and Australia during World War II, serving in the Australian army for several years.

In Paris he began working for French Vogue, and later Harper's Bazaar, Playboy, Elle, and other publications during the 1950s and 1960s as his reputation grew, traveling frequently throughout the world on assignments. With an online database of more than 17,000 photographers, Vintage Photo Prints has been serving art collectors around the globe since 1982. To browse our latest daily arrivals in the gallery.

A copper plate is dusted with resin powder, then the plate is heated to melt the resin, creating aquatint grain pattern. A thin tissue is coated with gelatin, then sensitized with dichromate. When this tissue is exposed to light in contact with a positive image, gelatin in the area that receives more light (highlights) becomes more insoluble to water copper plate by pressing the gelatin side of the tissue against the plate.

The plate is, then washed with warm water to remove soluble gelatin, leaving a thicker layer in highlights and the area with thicker layer. The rest is identical to any intaglio printing process.

The plate is inked, depositing more ink in the deeply etched areas and less in shallowly etched areas, thus creating tonal range, then printed on paper as positive image... Photogravure registers a wide variety of tones, through the transfer of etching ink from an etched copper plate to special dampened paper run through an etching press. The unique tonal range comes from photogravure's variable depth of etch, that is, the shadows are etched many times deeper than the highlights. Unlike half-tone processes which vary the size of dot, the depth of ink wells is varied in a photogravure plate. The human eye resolves these fine variations into a continuous tone image...
