Madonna in new book about Herb Ritts
This coming September 2010 a new book celebrating photographer Herb Ritts eight years after his death
is being released. It’s called The Golden Hour and its advertised as the definitive book on the life
of the legendary Ritts, with never-before-seen
images and interviews with his closest confidants.
The book includes many never-before-seen photographs and scores of interviews from business associates, curators, staff, lovers, and family, including his muse, Madonna, and other celebrities such as Cindy Crawford, Elton John, Tom Cruise, Anna Wintour, and Calvin Klein. The book includes images from Rittss personal archive, behind the scenes at photo shoots, parties, travels, intimate portraits, and moments with friends, along with notes and contact sheets that show how ideas became his best-known iconic images.
And for those who wonder about the Madonna treasures that will be in the book, MadonnaTribe has learnt that a never before seen image of Madonna circa 1984 – in which she’s apparently wearing a pair of boxers… on her head – will be in the book.
At the time of his death in 2002, Herb Ritts was
among the most celebrated photographers in celebrity portraiture, fashion, and music videos.
