This collection constitutes an anthology of images that Newton considered his most important work from 1974-1984 and which was to form the foundation for the famed "Private Property" series of exhibitions in 1984 and 1985. Over the years, the Private Property portfolio has achieved legendary status, and these images represent an extraordinary photographer at the height of his creativity.
These rare pre-1985 original vintage prints were produced in strictly limited edition numbers from a series of transparencies. Always unsigned, they were sent out to major publications to stimulate interest in a photographer’s work. Most were destroyed or written over, it is very rare to find them in immaculate condition.
These prints were gifted to Newton’s agent Norman Solomon, in recognition of the work he had carried out in promoting Private Property exhibitions in 1985. Each limited edition fine art print comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Norman Solomon. The ownership rights of this vintage print are supported by an original agreement with Newton in 1984, and supplemented by a further agreement with The Helmut Newton Estate in 2012. This print has been stored in conservation condition.
