Helmut Newton was extremely fond of his hometown of Berlin, and in October 2003 he donated an extensive photo collection to the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation, establishing the Helmut Newton Foundation. The foundation’s aim is the conservation, protection and presentation of the oeuvre of Helmut Newton and Alice Springs.

Original prints of the photographs from his August, 1976 pictorial of DeBell, “200 Motels, or How I Spent My Summer Vacation” were sold at auctions of Playboy archives by Bonhams in 2002 for $21,075. and by Christies in December 2003 for $26,290.
Bellucci’s appearance as one of two “Bond girls” in “Spectre” made a splash in 2015 when she was dubbed the oldest Bond girl ever at 51. Four years older than Craig, she made it clear at the time that she did not like the epithet.
Helmut Newton was a prolific, widely imitated fashion photographer whose provocative, erotically charged black-and-white photos were a mainstay of Vogue and other publications.
