Herb Ritts, the fashion photographer who rose to fame in the 80s and 90s, was known for his work in black and white, and for making humans look like classic sculpture. He became more popular in pop culture circles after he famously shot videos for Madonna, Janet Jackson, and Michael Jackson.
NOWNESS has some newly-revealed and never-before-seen shots from the photographer, Herb Ritts, who died in 2002. They feature a young Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Johnny Depp, David Bowie and Karl Lagerfeld. Naomi famously once said, “All of us experienced pain with Herb, but the pain was worth it. You want one of those photographs in your lifetime of modeling.” Cindy Crawford said, “Herb would always get you naked. I think he photographs women the way they want to look. You knew that’s the way it went, you are going to look good.”
