Herb Ritts began his photographic career in the late 1970s, and in addition to producing portraits and editorial fashion for Vogue, Vanity Fair, Interview and Rolling Stone, Ritts created extraordinarily successful advertising campaigns for designers such as Calvin Klein, Chanel, Gap, and Gianni Versace. Since 1988 he directed numerous influential and award winning music videos and commercials. His photographs are characterized by a simple and strong graphic quality, with clean lines and strong forms.
