Herb Ritts

The Rock Portraits

Here's a way to see rock 'n' roll royalty—David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Madonna, Prince, Rod Stewart, Tina Turner, and more—through the eyes of a top photographer.

Ritts shot these intimate portraits for Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, and other leading magazines, and he was widely hailed for his ability to connect with his subjects.

From B.B. King to Bruce Springsteen, from Bono to Britney Spears, come face-to-face with the kings and queens of pop music in this touring exhibition from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland.
