Herb Ritts began his photographic career in the late 70’s and gained a reputation as a master of art and commercial photography. In addition to producing portraits and editorial fashion for Vogue, Vanity Fair, Interview and Rolling Stone, Ritts also created successful advertising campaigns for Calvin Klein, Chanel, Donna Karan, Gap, Gianfranco FerrÃ©, Gianni Versace, Giorgio Armani, Levi’s, Pirelli, Polo Ralph Lauren, Valentino among others. Since 1988 he directed numerous influential and award winning music videos and commercials. His fine art photography has been the subject of exhibitions worldwide, with works residing in many significant public and private collections.In his life and work, Herb Ritts was drawn to clean lines and strong forms. This graphic simplicity allowed his images to be read and felt instantaneously. They often challenged conventional notions of gender or race. Social history and fantasy were both captured and created by his memorable photographs of noted individuals in film, fashion, music, politics and society.Ritts was committed to HIV/AIDS related causes, and contributed to many charitable organizations, among them amfAR, Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, Project Angel Food, Focus on AIDS, APLA, Best Buddies and Special Olympics . He was also a charter member on the Board of Directors for The Elton John Aids Foundation.Herb Ritts passed away on December 26th, 2002.
A Very interesting portfolio from Los Angeles based photographer, Ryan Schude.
So crazy !!!!
Very interesting project of the Russian photographer Alena Nikiforova. So if you like milk…..and beautiful women….who like milk. 🙂
Koen Demuynck is an Belgian photographer who managed to blend advertisement and surrealism. Sounds silly, but he is today one of the busiest photographers, and his work can be seen in many places. He takes stunning photos with incredible image manipulation. His website and portfolio are available here.
Another incredible Belgian Photographer !!
« Here’s something completely off the chain for you to digest over Easter. Bjork’s collaborative effort to save Iceland from sinking was a brilliantly screwed-up piece of art in its original format, with Lightning Bolt’s Brian Chippendale running riot over a submissive kit and Thom Yorke being Thom Yorke all over it. But this reworking courtesy of Switch takes it to a whole new level. »

Cool, new prince album…..so, if prince is a genius,the cd cover of the master is ……….aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarh !!!!!!
Extract from Rolling Stone Mag :
Leaving aside the Super Bowl halftime show and the assless pants, Prince is like Woody Allen: They’re both reclusive, sex-obsessed genÂiuses who release new material relentlessly and without any Âregard to the law of diminishing returns. Prince’s recording career now spans 31 years: Counting fan-club records, he’s averaged more than one studio album per year. His latest release actually contains three separate albums, including one he wrote and produced with his new protÃ©gÃ©e, Bria Valente. The package is excessive and uneven, of course, but it’s also intermittently brilliant and a real bargain (that is, if you buy it for $11.98 at Target â€” not so much if you download it with a $77 membership at lotusflow3r.com).
Prince played every instrument on MPLSoUND â€” just like the old days, only now he gets obsessive with Pro Tools. He isn’t as bawdy as he once was (becoming a Jehovah’s Witness will do that), but he’s still got a lot of humor and swagger. On the funky « (There’ll Never B) Another Like Me, » he sings about his beauty routine (it involves olive oil in his hair), and on the seven-and-a-half-minute « Ol’ Skool Company, » he covers issues from the TARP bailout to the state of radio (« If the White House is black/We gotta take the radio back »).
Five of MPLSoUND‘s nine songs sound like lost B sides from assorted classic Prince albums (Dirty Mind, 1999, Controversy, etc.); these days, even a really good Prince song usually reminds the listener of a better, earlier one. What really hamstrings the album, though, is a four-song sequence in the middle: Two syrupy ballads, one overlong tribute to Valente and one Caribbean-inflected number that sounds like a Smoove B seduction.
On LOtUSFLOW3R, Prince has a specific mission: showcasing his long-underrated guitar playing. Whether it’s the spare funk of « Wall of Berlin, » the metal grind of « Dreamer » or the hazy cover of? »Crimson and Clover, » the music kicks into high gear when Prince starts soloing, delivering one epic face melter after another in a style halfway between David Gilmour’s and Eddie Hazel’s. The drawback is that when he isnâ€™t playing guitar, the music on this disc is oddly muted â€” you keep waiting for Captain Six-String to fly in and save the day. It’s OK to call a song « Love Like Jazz, » but the jazz in the title shouldn’t be cocktail jazz.
Itâ€™s been more than a decÂade since Prince successfully launched the career of a female sidekick, but he’s trying again with Valente. Prince has touted Elixer as a quiet-storm album in the Sade mode, but most of it is just generic pop ballads. The lyrics are memorable only when they’re clunky (« Taste the rainbow, » goes one line, which sounds like it could have come from a Skittles ad). Valente has a pleasant, if thin, voice â€” she doesnâ€™t have the chops to elevate this material into anything memorable. There is one gem here: The catchy dance number « 2Nite, » where Valente whispers over insistent disco keyboards. One day, it, along with the best tracks from MPLSoUND and LOtUSFLOW3R, will sound right at home on Princeâ€™s inevitable box set: 2 Much of a Good Thing.
MPLSoUND – Three and a half stars
LOtUSFLOW3R – Three stars
Elixer – Two stars
