Incomparable Women of StyleACC Distribution
“Incomparable: Women of Style” contains Ms. Hartman’s photo gallery of the goddesses who populate our modern glamour Olympus: supermodels, actresses, jet-setters, editors and fashionistas. Iconic and rarely seen pictures of celebrated women like Jackie O, Anna Wintour, Jerry Hall, Linda Evangelista, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Grace Jones and Daphne Guinness . You have undoubtedly seen some of Ms. Hartman’s images, published in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle. But some of the most interesting shots in this book are of unknowns, like the “Blond girl smoking” outside a Grand Street bar in 1984.
Rose Hartman has been a tireless fixture on the New York fashion scene for four decades. She resembles the icons she photographs and these photos show the clarity and freshness of her eye: do not have ulterior motives but show their subjects individualism.
