The Wild World Of Helmut Newton, An Artist Who Brought Kink To Fashion (NSFW)

Francisco Goya’s “La Maja Desnuda (The Nude Maja)” introduced the painting world to a provocative image involving a nude woman reclining and unabashedly directing her gaze at the viewer. Inspired by Goya’s perspective, Helmut Newton was one of the first photographers to explore sensuality and eroticism within the world of fashion photography. By creating a realm composed of corseted silhouettes, leather saddles and handcuffs, one of the stars of modern photography challenged traditions and experimented with satire.

He was one of the the first artists to introduce sensuality and eroticism to the world of fashion photography.

Field & Field Turns Three! 

Field & Field was created in 2012 when fashion-minded entrepreneur Lindsay Field approached a Colorado saddle manufacturer about repurposing the scrap leather they tossed aside after cutting out saddle forms. 

The resulting first collection from the Denver-based company featured a line of high quality, handcrafted leather pouches with a subtle yet authentic equestrian feel. 

Field & Field currently has a new line in the works, but the pouches remain a best seller, with fans like TSG Editor Molly Knott whose daily-used pouch only gets better with age.

To celebrate, Field & Field is offering TSG Equestrian readers an exclusive 20% off (plus free shipping) on orders through July 31, 2015. Use the code: TSGEQ20 at checkout. 

Handmade in the USA.
