Museum für Fotografie – Vintage fashion photography

Museum für Fotografie (Museum for Photography) is one of the places in Berlin that one should visit if interested in seeing good old classic fashion photography.

The museum exhibits various photographers, such as Helmut Newton, who is one of the twentieth century’s most influential fashion photographers. On the first floor, Newton’s work is presented by a series of his nudes hanging right above the red carpet just behind the museum reception.

Right at the entry, I was greeted by a life-size cut-out of Newton where I took a couple of selfies. Not only that, but I found some of the cameras and the glasses he used to own. Moreover, the props he used in the famous photos he took which were later printed in magazines like Vogue, Elle, Paris Match are also exhibited in the museum.

There is also a projection in a small room on the first floor which displayed the work of Newton. In it, I saw him executing the compositions and the lightings of his photos.

Apart from Newton, the work of many famous photographers is also exhibited there.

I reached this place from S Bahn, U Bahn and Regional Bahn from other cities. It is 50  from the main Zoologischer station.
