REBLOG} LA’s Getty Center puts Herb Ritts in perspective

Posted: April 10th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Blogging | Tags: , , , | No Comments »

In the 1980s and ’90s, photographer Herb Ritts’ black and white portraits of movie stars and models like Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell created a look that was emblematic of the era, and now they are the subject of a major exhibit at Los Angeles’ Getty Center.

“Herb Ritts: L.A. Style,” which launched on Tuesday and runs through August 26, features renowned work by the artist including vintage prints, magazine covers, commercials and music videos. Around 20 percent of the photographs are on display for the first time. Ritts died in 2002, age 50.

“These were either never seen before or published once in an editorial spread in a magazine, then just sat in the archive,” curator Paul Martineau told Reuters. “I was looking to balance the iconic pictures that everyone knows and loves with the pictures that no one knows.”

Photographs that “everyone knows and loves” include a seminal portrait of Richard Gere in a San Bernardino gas station in 1977, wearing a t-shirt and smoking a cigarette. The shot was taken while the movie star and Ritts waited for the station attendant to change a flat tire.

Gere’s “Looking for Mr. Goodbar” hit theaters a few months later with the actor in a memorable supporting role that launched his career. Within months, the young photographer found his photos in the pages of Vogue, Esquire and Mademoiselle, with the last publication offering him his first assignment photographing Brooke Shields. Read the full article »»»»

Going From Black Hat To White Hat SEO Doesn’t Mean Google Will Like You. Matt Cutts himself shared results this week from a survey he conducted, finding only twenty percent of people in the U.S. have ever heard of SEO.

MATT CUTTS EXPLAINS GOOGLE SEOMuch of the chatter in the SEO community over the past month has been on Google’s efforts to level the playing field for ma & pa vs professionally operated sites, comments to this effect by Google’s Matt Cutts at SXSW have indicated that Google is working on things that would make it so people who over-optmize their sites don’t necessarily rank better than others who haven’t put a thought into SEO.

The way that I often think about SEO is that it’s like a coach,” Cutts said. “It’s someone who helps you figure out how to present yourself better. In an ideal world though, you wouldn’t have to think about presenting yourself and whether search engines can crawl your website, because they’d just be so good that it could figure out how to crawl through the Flash, how to crawl through the forms, how to crawl through the javascript, how to crawl through whatever it is. And for the most part, most search engines have made a lot of progress on being able to crawl through that richer content. Normally, we don’t sort of pre-announce changes, but there is something we’ve been working on in the last few months, and hopefully in the next couple months or so, or you know, in the coming weeks, we hope to release it.Read the full article »»»»
