This exhibition draws together three quite disparate figures, by virtue of their shared interest in the genre of nude photography. Saul Leiter, a pioneer of the New York school of photography in the mid 20th century, is best known for his reflective abstractions of city streets, but he also produced a clandestine series of nude prints, known only to close friends during his lifetime. Lynch has been a little less coy about his proclivity for the medium – he published a book of his nude photographs earlier this year – while Helmut Newton was probably more comfortable in this genre than any other, becoming famous for his stylised, fetishistic images that blur the boundaries between fashion and erotica.
