Werner Herzog to do Helmut Newton Doc

From ScreenDaily:

At the request of Helmut Newton’s widow, Herzog is also developing a documentary about the legendary German-Australian fashion photographer, famed for his work in Vogue and other high-end fashion publications.

I can't think of a better director to tackle Newton's career. Their work, both of them, has a directness but avoids being edgy for its own sake.

Here's a couple shots by Newton of Sigourney Weaver I've always liked.

 Yeah, that's directness.
