Herb Ritts: L.A. Style, now showing at the Cincinnati Art Museum, features the works of one of the top fashion photographers of the ’80s.
Ritts, who died in 2002, is known for his portraits of celebrities including Richard Gere and Madonna as well as athletes, dancers and fashion models. For his unique style, the artist was fond of using the bright California sunlight and outdoor locations to produce bold contrasts.
The exhibit, organized by the J. Paul Getty Museum, is on view through Dec. 30 and includes a selection of famous images and previously unpublished photographs as well as Ritts’ work in music and fashion videos.
