    Not sure where to post this but...

    LOS ANGELES - Acclaimed photographer Helmut Newton was killed in a car crash Friday, police said. He was 83.

    Newton, a fashion photographer whose work appeared in magazines such as Playboy, Elle and Vogue, was best known for his stark, black-and-white nude photos.

    Newton lost control of his Cadillac while leaving the Chateau Marmont hotel in Hollywood and crashed into a wall across the street, said Officer April Harding, a police spokeswoman.

    Before hitting the wall, the car brushed an Associated Press photographer who was arriving at the hotel on an unrelated assignment.

    Newton was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he died a short time later, Harding said.

    Newton, who was Jewish, fled Germany for Singapore in December 1938, a month after Nazi-led pogroms. He eventually settled in Australia and became a citizen, then took up

    Wow! I live here and heard nothing about it. If it is true, what a sad day. He had a great cense of humor, One that will be sorely missed.
    Stop trying to get into my mind, There is nothing there!

    I met Helmut and worked with him a few times. He was really one of the classiest, brightest people I have every known. Sad to lose him but glad he left such a rich body of work.
    Pity the dyslexic agnostic insomniac who lies awake night after night wondering if there is a dog.
