Exploring the feminine forms became his signature and made him immortal to this day. His unique and provocative portraits, in which women were always the driving force, still raise questions: did he portray them as powerful subjects, or were they primarily the sexualized object of his male gaze? In addition to the beautiful photographs of Helmut Newton, the documentary alternates with intimate interviews from Grace Jones, Charlotte Rampling, Isabella Rossellini and widow June Newton, among others, about his life and legacy of photography.
