Chorus of Light: Photographs from the Sir Elton John Collection, Atlanta: High Museum of Art; New York: Rizzoli, 2000, p. 193 C. Churchward, Herb Ritts The Golden Hour, A Photographer’s Life and His World, New York: Rizzoli, 2010, p. 16 P. Martineau, Herb Ritts L.A. Style, Los Angeles: Getty Publications, 2012, cover and p. 29, pl. 1 Catalogue Essay "I like large planes and spaces, areas of texture and light, like deserts or oceans or monumental places." HERB RITTS This sublime image by Herb Ritts was created originally as part of an advertising campaign for Versace featuring the supermodel Christy Turlington. She is fanned by a divine halo of black silk, secured by tarpaulin, creating a goddess-like aura around her body. She is positioned bastion-like on the El Mirage Dry Lakebed, an arid landscape which could easily be mistaken for the edge of the world. Largely born from the very specific light of the West Coast, Ritts’s work is elemental , conjuring wind, earth, warmth. The bodies he depicts are beautiful, sensuous and close to nature. Often pieces of terrain or ocean ephemera are used as natural fashion fixtures. The silk dress in this image is the prop that frames and ornaments the lines of the body and adds drama. Ritts places his figure inside a canopy to provide perspective and scale within a confined space. Here, we revel in the delights of abstraction: the combination of sculpted silhouette, bleaching out of the body, exclusion of limbs and sleek cap-like hair. Another print from this edition is in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Read More
