Rose Hartman

Chronicling a world of beauty and style, photographer Rose Hartman has
captured fashion's trendsetters for thirty years. Her lens has given order to the chaos of openings, runway shows, and couture's triumphs and tragedies, by letting the viewer see the substance behind the form.

Born in New York City, Hartman graduated from City College of New York with 30 grad credits in English, and a minor in art history. Traveling the world-from Bali to Russia, she photographed on location as well as taking photo workshops.

Hartman's photographs appear worldwide in books and publications such as Allure, Harper's Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Vogue, W, Panorama and Stern.

Her first book, BIRDS OF PARADISE, An Intimate View of the New York Fashion World (Delacorte Press, 1980), remains recognized as much as a collection of photographs, as a history of the era it records.

She has exhibited in group shows at the Whitney Museum, the Serge Sorokko Gallery, Experience Music Project, the Library of Performing Arts , the Museum of the City of New York and the Artist Gallery in Moscow. The Pucci Gallery also presented a solo show of Hartman's photos.

As a social historian, Hartman's images have focused on an exuberant time in New York-from the divine decadence of the late seventies, to the eighties (with its spendor and excess) to the nineties with fashion at its peak.
