Age 19


Believe it or not, Helmut was only 19 when these photos were made.
He held the Junior Mr. Europe title at the time.

  1. His upper body is phenomenal for a 19-year-old! Is it just me, or is the light a bit..."off?" The contrast between his (great) body and the background is not very strong.

    1. I agree about the contrast and almost didn't post the photo, but it shows him at an early age, so I used it. Maybe it was overcast? Or maybe he didn't rate the best photographers that early in his career. I don't know who took it. Maybe it was the famously sloppy Barrington. Helmut did work for him at some point.

  2. Yes, very impressive for a 19 year old. I'm not sure when Helmut was born but he first met Barrington in Cannes in May 1963.

    1. Helmut was born in 1944, so he would have been 19 in 1963. That pretty much makes up my mind that this was by Barrington. Thanks, Peter!
