Incomparable Women of Style:  Selections from the Rose Hartman Photography Archives, 1977 – 2011

This exhibition of black-and-white and color photographs by Rose Hartman, will be on
view November 4, 2011 through January 20, 2012.  It is the first, large-scale
installation on view at FIT’s Gladys Marcus Library, Seventh Avenue and W. 27th
Street, NYC.

Photographer Rose Hartman has been chronicling iconic moments in fashion, style,
and culture for more than 30 years, within exclusive New York City nightlife
venues, fashion shows, parties, clubs, and openings. From Studio 54 to the Mudd
Club to Chelsea art galleries today, Hartman’s career has yielded a treasure
trove of material that portrays incomparable women of high fashion, street
style, and New York City society through the eye of a social documentarian.
