Herb Ritts and the Caped Crusader

Yesterday I attended SF PhotoFair, a new photography show here that showcased the work of both local photographers and artists overseas. 

There was amazing work on display. One photo in particular that caught my eye was this picture of Michael Keaton during the 1988 filming of Batman.

The photographer was Herb Ritts, a Los Angeles fashion photographer who died in 2002. I actually had never heard of him, nor had I ever seen this photo.

The photo really stood out, especially within a hall full of photos of beautiful models, landscapes, cityscapes, and street photography.
