"Herb Ritts [was] among the foremost international fashion, celebrity, and fine art photographers [of the late 80s and early 90s]. His photographs appear in Vanity Fair, Vogue, and many other fashion magazines...Notorious is Ritts at his best: it offers a sweeping array of virtually unpublished portraits of the best-known arts, literary, and entertainment personalities, among them Madonna, William Burroughs, Elizabeth Taylor, Dizzy Gillespie, and Jack Nicholson. . . . Notorious is a perfect showcase for Ritts's glamorous fusion of substance with style."--the publisher (my brackets).
