Streamed lines, provacative and truly through the eye of the artist.
Major exhibition of legendary photographer Herb Ritts’s work, called L.A. Style is featured at the Getty Center here in Los Angeles from now till August 26, 2012. The late Los Angeles-based photographer burst into the visual scene in the 1980′s with his unique and captivating style.
As the Getty says, “He revolutionized fashion photography, modernized the nude, and transformed celebrities into icons.” Classic and gorgeous.
From the late 1970s until Ritts’s untimely death 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.
