Herb Ritts: The Rock Portraits


Known for his elegant and minimalist work, photographer Herb Ritts (1952-2002) had a gift for turning stars into icons. See how he captured the likes of David Bowie, U2, Cher, Bruce Springsteen, Prince, Madonna, and many more—the world’s biggest music stars—and in the process, helped define their iconic status for generations of fans. Stage costumes and guitars from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame are also on view. Organized by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in association with the Herb Ritts Foundation.
