    Default Helmut Newton worked for Strait Times in Singapore!!!

    Do you know!?!?!

    Check this out:
    http://sg.news.yahoo.com/040124/1/3hhh2.html

    "As he flirted with death by consorting with Aryan girls, his parents managed to secure him passage on a ship to China, but he stopped off in Singapore, where he got a job at the Straits Times newspaper, a job he held for just two weeks.

    "Soon I realized how far I was from the goal I'd set for myself of becoming a Vogue photographer," he told the New Yorker last year.

    Instead he met a glamorous older Belgian woman, and powered by an epic sex drive, became her lover and caroused around the British colony until moving to Australia in 1940, just ahead of the Japanese invasion."
