In "16th Arrondissement" (1975), Newton subtly plays on the relationship between lady and maid. A forcefully placed hand on the side of the door and intense matching of gaze accentuates the suggestive tension of the image heightened by the threshold of the doorway. Taken in the notoriously affluent 16th arrondissement to which Helmut Newton called home, his lens acts as a stairwell voyeur cloaked by the night – allowing us a tantalising snapshot that plays on the viewer's imagination of the narrative to come. Newton is at his compositional best- using shadow's reminiscent of prison bars and the repetition of strong diagonals in the architecture and female form to accentuate hierarchies of dominance and submission.
