“The Empowered Woman” (1994), one of the 33 never-before-seen #HelmutNewton photographs on display now in TriBeCa (49 Chambers St.). Of this picture, art and antiques dealer @guyregalnyc says, “This image [was] taken in Monte Carlo during a shoot for Vogue focused on high heels. That’s Nadja Auermann from the shoulders down posed in an powerful, sculptural, Romanesque manner. But there’s a bizarre leg brace on her. If she were standing there without this restraint, nude, holding this chain, it would emit such strength. But this way, the structure both holds her aloft and holds her back. It shows that power doesn’t come without vulnerability.” Visit link in bio to see five more exclusive images from the collection.
