Newton is best known for his erotic and sexually charged photographs, which began to appear in the pages of some of the world's biggest fashion magazines during the 1960s. 

The record for his work was set for a print of the iconic Sie Kommen, which made $662,000 at Christie's New York in 2008. 

Sebastiao Salgado's Church Gate Station, Bombay, India is likely to prove another highlight of the February 19 sale, with a $45,000-65,000 estimate. 

Salgado is among the most influential photographers of his generation. He is best known for his documentary work in developing nations. 

Church Gate Station is one of the busiest terminuses in India, with tens of thousands of people passing through it every day. 

A portfolio of photographs by Hungarian-American street photographer Andre Kertesz (1894-1985) is offered with a valuation of $30,000-45,000. 

The images were executed between 1913 and 1929, with the collection printed in 1989.
