Herb Ritts in Balance
Palazzo della Ragione Photography, Milan - until June 5, 2016
The subjects taken in Ritts's photos are authentic classical sculptures. The bodies can be twisted, furniture and real estate: they sure are always shaped by a light that plays with volumes because in them creeps. The balance, as rightly the title of the exhibition suggests, is the king. It is true that the author sometimes has fun with the sensuality and the irony, but always focuses on the construction of perfect compositional structures which nevertheless appear dehumanized.
