When clicking through Herb Ritts' photos from the '80s and '90s, it's almost impossible not be playing "Freedom" by George Michael in your head. This could be because of the very nature of his nostalgic images, or perhaps because he seemed to photograph every flipping '90s supermodel there is.
Ritts worked for Vanity Fair, Vogue and Rolling Stone in his day, but the skill he brought to campaigns for Versace, Valentino and Chanel are equally as rad. He did the portrait of Olivia Newton John on her 1981 Physical album cover, a fresh faced Brooke Shields on the cover of Elle, directed Madonna's "Cherish" video, and introduced Cindy Crawford and Richard Gere at a BBQ.
