Mamiya RZ Camera

Mamiya RZ 6x7 camera body fitted with a 150mm lens, viewing prism, motor winder, 220 film back, and handgrip, owned and used by photographer Herb Ritts and donated by the Herb Ritts Foundation.

Herb Ritts' favored choice of photographic equipment was a medium format camera producing a 6 x 7 centimeter (2 1/4" x 2 3/4") negative. Working with three cameras that were set up identically it allowed him to keep a spontaneity in his sessions giving both himself and subject the creative freedom "To capture the moment."
