[T]he master of monochrome minimalism – Herb Ritts brought an elegant, cool aesthetic to nineties fashion campaigns that had never been seen before.
Shot against the beautiful, bright California outdoors – his intimate approach to portraiture and sculptural studies of the human form remain timeless and unparalleled.
With exquisite casting – Kate Moss and Mark Wahlberg for Calvin Klein, to jazz maestro Dizzy Gillespie for Gap – Ritts elevated fashion campaigns to fine art.
We’ve curated a selection of our favourite campaigns below – including iconic moments for Versace, Calvin Klein and Georgio Armani. See more of Herb Ritts most classic moments in our seven seminal images piece.
