Catalogue Note

‘I enjoy shooting women as feminine objects. There's a sensitivity to the photographs. Many times they're stripped down to the elements, as in the picture of the five models together. They're not like what Lindbergh or Bruce Weber does. I enjoy women being women in my way, and they're still feminine. They're very much themselves.’ – Herb Ritts
