Magnum Photos: The Misfits at Helmut Newton Foundation

One particular highlight is the Helmut Newton Foundation with its exhibition entitled Magnum Photos: The Misfits (3 September – 20 November 2022). In 1960 the famous director John Huston recreated Arthur Miller’s famous work as a star-studded movie. Almost everybody who was at Magnum at the time took photographs on the set, creating world-famous images that will feature as part of the agency’s anniversary celebrations in Berlin.Images on the set: the insightful pictures taken during the production of The Misfits offer a glimpse behind the scenes in the truest sense. One can see Marilyn Monroe concentrating on her lines in a photo taken by Inge Morath, or Montgomery Clift in the back of a car, taken by Dennis Stock. Another example is the famous group photo of the actors on the set, flanked by the director and author and taken by Elliott Erwitt. The exhibition also features photographs by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Davidson, Cornell Capa, Ernst Haas and Erich Hartmann. In short, the exhibition is a who’s who of past and present photographer legends. With its presentation of Magnum Photos: The Misfits, the Helmut Newton Foundation is celebrating the photo agency’s seventy-fifth anniversary. At the BERLIN PHOTO WEEK numerous other events featuring members of the legendary cooperative will be taking place in Berlin. (Matthias Harder)
