Editorial Reviews

Gretchen Garner
Weighing in as top contender for the heavyweight celebrity photobook of the season, Ritts' album is packed with visual punch, gorgeously printed, and sure to be a crowd pleaser. Ritts' style combines zany, spirited Annie Leibovitz-like collaboration with his subjects with the heavy sensuality of a Bruce Weber. He is superb at his craft, which he practices mostly in the employ of the slick fashion and entertainment magazines. Each of the 124 black-and-white portraits herein is bled to cover a page, or sometimes a 15-by-231/2-inch, two-page spread. Most are close-up, in-your-face shots, especially the one on the cover--an enormous view of Sandra Bernhard's open mouth. Other subjects range from genuine heroes (Stephen Hawking, Mikhail Gorbachev, Louise Bourgeois, the Dalai Lama) to the usual show-biz types (there's lots of Madonna). Such range clearly reflects a state of mind Daniel Boorstin warned against in "The Image" (1961) when he wrote, "Celebrity-worship and hero-worship should not be confused. Yet we confuse them every day. . . . We come closer and closer to degrading all fame into notoriety." Well, the book "is" called "Notorious".
