PHOTO
The Getty Center opens two photo exhibitions today. Portraits of Renown: Photography and the Cult of Celebrity is pulled exclusively from the J. Paul Getty Museum's collection of photographs to examine the “visual strategies used by photographers to picture the famous from the 1840s to the year 2000.” The second exhibition, Herb Ritts: L.A. Style, shows how Ritts revolutionized fashion photography and turned celebrities into icons often using LA as subject matter. Both photo shows remain on view through Aug. 26.

ZINNEMANN FILM
Tuesdays in April, The Getty also presents the film series Fred Zinnemann: Cinema of Resistance to celebrate the director’s career and the 60-year anniversary of his most famous film High Noon.
