Rose Hartman

Rose HartmanFor the past three decades, Rose Hartman has photographed the rich, the famous and the stylish in some of the most legendary settings of New York nightlife, from Studio 54 to the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute. Her arresting pictures, that manage to create the illusion of intimacy in the most public circumstances, have been published in countless international publications, including American Vogue, Harper's Bazaar The New York Times.

Her first book, ‘Birds of Paradise’ (Delacorte Press, 1980) offers a private and extraordinary look into the world of fashion and its personalities, from a visit to Ralph Lauren’s studio to the glamorous and intimate fashion shows that Halston used to organize at his atelier at the Olympic Tower. ACC, a London/New York-based publishing group, has published her second photography book, ‘Incomparable Women of Style’, in 2012.

Her images have been widely featured in some of the most prestigious museums and galleries of the United States, including the Museum of the City of NY, the Whitney Museum, Dean Project, the Vincent Astor Gallery at Lincoln Center, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Recently, the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T) in New York has acquired her extensive archives, a photo treasure that, at least in part, was exhibited between November 2011 and February 2012.
