Herb Ritts Tribute

Stephanie, Cindy, Christy, Tatjana, Naomi, Hollywood 1989 © Herb Ritts Foundation

“Herb Ritz would have turned 70 today…
It was love at first sight: I saw the “Fred with tires” shot on the cover of Foto&Video magazine in 1999 and have since called Herb’s work a major source of admiration, inspiration and love for photography. Everybody on his images always look like a million dollar men. And they are all out of time. What a great regret that the life of my favorite photographer turned out to be so short. After all, if this did not happen at the end of 2002, maybe the world would still enjoy his work. I would like to honor the memory of the maestro with this tribute frame cosplaying Herb’s iconic work called “Stephanie, Cindy, Christy, Tatjana, Naomi”. Strana Ozz show’s girls kindly agreed to get naked for it.”
