Carla Sozzani, former editor-in-chief of the Italian Elle and Vogue magazines, has collected photographs for many years. Since 1990, she has also exhibited them in her Milan gallery in close collaboration with numerous internationally renowned photographers including Helmut Newton and his wife June, aka (Alice Springs), Sarah Moon, Paolo Roversi, Don McCullin, David Bailey, Peter Lindbergh and many others. Galleria Carla Sozzani has been under patron- age of the Fondazione Sozzani since 2016 and it continues to be a central part of her first concept store, founded in the heart of Milan: 10 Corso Como. Following four exhibitions in Milan, the personal friendship between Carla Sozzani and Helmut Newton has resulted in Between Art & Fashion: a new exhibition of 200 photographs selected from her multi-faceted photography col- lection, which will be on view at the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin until 18 November 2018. Along with fashion pictures, the selection includes experimental photography by Berenice Abbott and Duane Michals, portraits by Francesca Woodman and Daido Moriyama and still lifes by Man Ray and William Klein. Clearly, time for a talk with Carla Sozzani about her pas- sion for photography and how she created such a diverse collection.
