Typical of Helmut Newton's fashion pictures of that period, when he famously said that the best fashion pictures don't look like fashion pictures. A woman in haute couture, evening gown and fur, in in a service stairwell kissing a gendarme or soldier. The incongruity is what accentuates the fashion that the shot was about.
This is a vintage silver gelatine print produced from one of a series of transparencies that Newton considered his most provocative and important work through 1985.
