Known for his elegant and minimalist work and his mastery of photographing in natural light, photographer Herb Ritts had a gift for turning stars into icons.

"Herb Ritts: The Rock Portraits" is the first curated collection of his photos of some of music’s most celebrated artists. The exhibition includes images of the likes of David Bowie, Tina Turner, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Prince, Cher, Madonna and many more.

Also shown with many of his best-known portraits are stage costumes and guitars from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. "Herb Ritts: The Rock Portraits" runs through September 2 at the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, New York. Chris Rossi is the museum’s Director of Exhibitions.
