Last Saturday I visited the Herb Ritts: LA Style
photo exhibit at the Getty Center.
Herb Ritts (American, 1952 – 2002) Cindy Crawford, Malibu,1993
The exhibit included vintage prints, magazine covers, commercials and music videos by Herb Ritts, many on display for the first time. His black and white images of Hollywood celebrities, athletes and models have been an inspiration to photographers around the world.
He revolutionized fashion photography. He died in 2002 at the age of 50.
