Helmut Newton was a master storyteller who consistently built photographic narrative using subtle detailing and exquisite composition. In 'Viviane F', Newton plays with our imaginations, constructing an open-ended narrative centred around the phone, gloves and purse, newspaper and live television. This intimate portrait reveals a sophisticated, intelligent woman reflecting perhaps on an important call before the night's entertainment.

"The photographs don't arouse me. All I can think about is the hard work it took to make them."
