Helmut Newton & Peter Beard Star in Sotheby's Sale
Masterful works by Helmut Newton and Peter Beard star in Sotheby's Photographs sale in London on Tuesday. Prices have come down from their pre-crash levels so no doubt many of the lots will seem like relative bargains when the market recovers.

Also on offer is his Winnie at the Negresco, Nice, 1975, est. at about $9,000 - $12,000. Among the Beard works in the sale are Cheetah Cub Orphans in Mweiga, 1968, est. at about $22,000 - $30,000, and From 'The End of the Game', 1964, est. at about $15,000 - $23,000.
