Herb Ritts: L.A. Style
At the J. Paul Getty Museum, Getty Center
April 3–August 26, 2012

Herb Ritts (American, 1952–2002) was a Los Angeles-based photographer who established an international reputation for his distinctive photographs of fashion models, nudes, and pop icons. From the late 1970s until his untimely death from AIDS in 2002, Ritts’s ability to create photographs 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 synergy between art, popular culture, and business that followed in the wake of the Pop Art movement of the 1960s and 1970s. This exhibition features a selection of Ritts’s vintage prints, magazine covers, Polaroids, and commercial video projects.

Herb Ritts: L.A. Style is sponsored in Los Angeles by Lincoln.
