Hollywood photographer joins OKC Museum of Art

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma City Museum of Art opens a new exhibit Thursday, Herb Ritts: Beauty and Celebrity.

The exhibition features 80 of Ritt’s iconic black and white images.

Over the years, Ritts worked with Madonna, Matthew McConaughey, Jack Nicholson, and many other well known celebrities and super models.

He emerged in the 1980s to become one of the most successful celebrity and fashion photographers of the late twentieth century and an important part of the history of American photography.

Ritt worked exclusively with a traditional non-digital camera and was known to shoot up to 800 rolls of film trying to capture the “perfect” shot.

NewsChannel 4’s Ali Meyer talks with museum curator Jennifer Klos about the exhibit.
