Helmut Newton You're My Hero

I love Helmut Newton's work. Some people would argue that he hates women and that his photographs are demeaning. I totally disagree. There is nothing more powerful than a sexy woman and he knew how to put that idea in your face. This photo of Daryl Hannah circa 1980's is such a statement. The amazon who can't be troubled with a crying baby. The baby of course representing real life, motherhood, sacrifice. The amazon representing fantasy, perfection, and sex. It's a little bit troubling, very strange, and somehow inspiring.
