HR “I like form and shape and strength in pictures.”

DP “Ritts constructs compositions where emphasis is placed on the void as well as the form. The images derive power from their simplicity and their focus on form, imbuing them with a graphic quality that abstracts the body into shapes, figures and lines. In ‘Veiled Dress’, the model’s statuesque pose transforms her figure into something sculptural, monumental. The negative space too lends a kind of power, not just to the image but to the viewer, creating room to bring his or her own interpretations to the work, to reflect.”
