About Herb RittsView Profile »
Herb Ritts (American, 1952-2002) revolutionized fashion photography, modernized the nude, and transformed celebrities into icons. In addition to producing portraits and editorial fashion photographs for Vogue, Vanity Fair, Interview, and Rolling Stone, Ritts also created successful advertising campaigns for Calvin Klein, Chanel, Donna Karan, Gap, Gianfranco Ferré, Gianni Versace, Giorgio Armani, Levi's, Pirelli, Polo Ralph Lauren, and Valentino, among others. He often made use of the bright California sunlight to produce bold contrasts, and his preference for outdoor locations, such as the desert and the beach, helped to separate his work from that of his New York-based peers. From the late 1970s until Ritts's untimely death from AIDS-related complications in 2002, his ability to create images that successfully bridged the gap between art and commerce was not only a testament to the power of his imagination and technical skill, but also marked the synergistic union between art, popular culture, and business that followed in the wake of the Pop Art movement of the 1960s and 1970s.Interested in consigning works by Herb Ritts?
