Herb Ritts Wrapped Torso, Los Angeles Poster

Title: Herb Ritts Wrapped Torso, Los Angeles Poster
  • To show off this dress by Issey Miyake, Ritts selected a dark backdrop and had model Karen Alexander adopt a ballet-like pose. Lighted from above, the semi-translucent fabric both reveals and obscures the contours of the model's body. The photographer's choice of the platinum printing process over the less expensive and more common gelatin silver process gives the photograph a significantly wider range of tones and a luxurious matte surface.
