The Los Angeles legacy of famed fashion photographer Helmut Newton—who famously died in a car crash at West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont in 2004—will be immortalized in two unique exhibitions this month.
From June 14 through August 26, Three Boys From Pasadena: A Tribute to Helmut Newton will take place at Pasadena's Art Center College of Design. The show debuted in Berlin and features the work of former Newton apprentices Mark Arbeit, George Holz and Just Loomis, who first met the iconic lensman when they were studying at the school.
Sex and Landscapes runs June 26 through August 25 at Perry Rubenstein Gallery in Santa Monica and will display "20 nudes and 20 landscapes, several of which were shot in Los Angeles," according to WWD. Both exhibits are curated by Newton's widow, June.
