David Lynch’s Sexiest Photos Are Steaming up Berlin
The photographer combines night scenes with the uncanny of our soul
Entertainment 09 Dec 2018

The famed Hollywood (or anti-Hollywood, depending on how you look at it) film director and artist is having a solo show at Berlin’s Helmut Newton Foundation (also known as the Museum for Photography). It’s all of his nudes.

They’re actually quite minimal and many are out-of-focus but they all have Lynch’s trademark eeriness that is found in Twin Peaks. “Lynch combines night scenes with the uncanny of our soul.
The photographs were taken independently of his cinematic work but they are as enigmatic as his films,” said Dr. Matthias Harder, curator of the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin.
“We can think of these kinds of sexual allusions like Kubrick’s film Eyes Wide Shut. The models are nameless, mostly in undefined rooms. You don’t know exactly what happened or what will happen – it’s all about your own associations and imaginations. It’s up to you how to define it and how you feel about it.”
