The glamour and beauty of the human body will be on display in an exhibit straight from breaking attendance numbers at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles California. Herb Ritts: L.A. Style, on view at the Cincinnati Art Museum October 6th through December 30, 2012, explores the photographer’s career portraying figures from Richard Gere and Madonna to other notables, as well as Ritts’ innovative nudes and fashion images. L.A. Style includes a selection of renowned and previously unpublished photographs, as well as Ritts’ projects directing music and fashion videos. A major portion of the works in the exhibition was recently acquired by the Getty Museum through purchase and in the form of a generous gift from the Herb Ritts Foundation. L.A. Style is accompanied by a 206-page book that, in addition to reproductions of the works in the exhibition, contains incisive essays by Paul Martineau and James Crump.
