"Herb Ritts: Work"
1999-11-05 until 2000-01-28
Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art
Kansas City, MO, USA United States of America

This first full-scale retrospective exhibition of the work of one of our greatest fashion photographers features over two hundred photographs-many celebrity portraits and images of the highly idealized human body. As a photographer of fashion and celebrity, Ritts has created memorable magazine covers and spreads, as well as album covers, movie advertisements, music videos, and commercials. In the past decade, he has also presented his work in galleries and in books that bring together photographs around a particular theme.

Ritts's images of the nude - of models, of athletes and bodybuilders, of Maasai women in Africa - celebrate the human body as strong, sensuous, and beautiful. His portraits of famous figures, from Madonna to Dizzy Gillespie, often have a whimsical quality, creating the sense of an intimate encounter with a larger-than-life personality. Based in Los Angeles, Herb Ritts is very much an image maker for our time, a photographer whose assured eye and fertile imagination translate our culture's dreams and desires into strong, memorable pictures. This exhibition was organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
