Idealising Herb Ritts

Kate Moss - Herb Ritts

Few were better at idealising the Hollywood glitterati than Herb Ritts. His body of photography produced exclusively in black and white was high production, glamour and aspirational.

Think of Chris Isaak’s – “Wicked Game” music video – which was designed by Ritts and you have his aesthetic in a nutshell.

In the realm of shallow glamour, few were more seductive and accomplished than Ritts.
