HOUSTON (AP) - An exhibit of works by fashion photographer Helmut Newton is set to open this weekend in Houston.
The exhibit opening Sunday at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston includes all of the photographs from his first three books. More than 200 photographs from the books will be on display through Sept. 25.
The museum said in a news release that "Helmut Newton: White Women, Sleepless Nights, Big Nudes" is the first large-scale U.S. exhibition of Newton's work. The exhibit takes its name from the titles of the first three books.
Helmut Newton, whose work appeared in magazines including Playboy, Elle and Vogue, is best known for his stark, black-and-white nude photos of women. He died at the age of 83 in 2004 after a car crash in Los Angeles.
