He was not famous for a specific photograph exactly, but more for the nature of the photos he took. He was born in an era where women had just gained a new type of freedom within themselves. Women were more independent and Newton, throughout his career, empowered women. He showed their true magnificence and beauty in each of his works. But one of his most known pieces is Sie Kommen (Dressed) and Sie Kommen (Naked) (shown above).
In the beginning of his career, Newton opened a studio on Flanders Lane, a fashionable street in the textile district of Melbourne, where he began to shoot fashion and theater. It was there that Newton would also see his work in his first exhibition, along with architectural photographer Wolfgang Sievers, who had served alongside Newton in the army.
