Herb Ritts L.A. Style documentary provides an intimate look into the life and times of Mr. Ritts via interviews with his subjects and collaborators. The stunning exhibit is currently on display at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles through September 2, 2012.
Herb Ritts (1952–2002) fashioned himself into one of the top photographers to emerge from the 1980s. Ritts’ aesthetic incorporated facets of life in and around Los Angeles. 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.
