HELMUT NEWTON Robert Mapplethorpe ALICE SPRINGS Joseph Beuys RITZ Magazine
Gemma Grace cover of Ritz No 77 1983
Helmut Newton is interviewed inside in a feature he shares with his wife Alice Springs. They are having a joint exhibition and the 5 page feature includes images by Newton and portraits of Robert Mapplethorpe, Yves Saint Laurent, Charlotte Rampling and Joseph Beuys by Alice Springs.
There is also a very rare and we believe unique ad for Helmut's show by Olympus cameras made for Ritz magazine. It references the big nudes which will be on display in the upcoming exhibition.
There are a few photographs from the exhibition opening in the back pages of this issue.

Excellent condition. Slight mottling to the cover, see both edges on the front cover image, which is common for this type of newsprint paper after 40 years see photographs from the actual magazine.
The final image is the back cover with further mottling which is confined to the cover pages only
