Helmut Newton in Koblenz, Germany

“About the feminists, I’ve always said that the women in my photographs are triumphant and strong. And if there’s a man, than he is not very strong, he is more of an accessory, and would possibly be stepped on by the woman. However, the woman is the important and the victorious person. In this case, I believe, I’m a feminist.”
