  • Versace Dress, Back View, El Mirage

    1990

    Artist Herb Ritts, American, 1952–2002

    Description

    The American photographer Herb Ritts produced a body of work in the 1980s and 1990s that seems to embody the outdoor lifestyle and glamour of the southern California beautiful set. This photograph, taken at El Mirage Dry Lake in California, appeared on the cover of Italian designer Gianni Versace's September 1990 catalogue and incorporates a formalism and contemporary sensuality characteristic of Ritts's aesthetic. Ritts's photograph appeals through its boldly contrasting lights and darks.
