When it comes to having a exhibit on the top floor of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the only person who can replace Herb Ritts is Herb Ritts.

The legendary music photographer shot everyone from Madonna and Justin Timberlake to Tina Turner and Michael Jackson. Ritts, who passed away in 2002, is also known for making the transition from still photography to directing well-known music videos like Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Games” and Michael Jackson’s “In the Closet.”

Much of Ritts’ work has been on display in “Herb Ritts: The Rock Portraits, which opened this past March on levels 5 and 6 of the museum.

The exhibit will close on Feb. 28 and be replaced by more Herb Ritts photographs. A new exhibit will open sometime in March or April, featuring more than 60 photos donated by Ritts family.

“This one will be a smaller show, but very special in its own right,” says Karen Herman, vice president of collections and curatorial affairs for the Rock Hall. “Some of the prints we’ve shown, some we haven’t.”
