From 1977 to 1983, Rose was one of the top movie and music photographers at the Los Angeles Times. He made his reputation by working efficiently and waiting patiently for just the right moment to shoot his subjects, including such icons as Jack Nicholson, Bruce Springsteen, Jane Fonda, and Keith Richards. Important political figures such as Ronald Reagan, George Bush Sr., and Gov. Jerry Brown also posed for Rose, who captured moments when the celebrities were at their best-unlike today's paparazzi, who look for awkward moments. From images of Richard Pryor mugging for the camera to Jane Fonda touching up her makeup to Ronald Regan posing in a studio, Rose always treated his subjects with respect. Rose's camera never intruded on his subjects' privacy, and these images (many of them previously unpublished) truly celebrate the exuberance of Hollywood and of the era. Included are a foreword by Los Angeles Times writer Patrick Goldstein, an essay by Rose, and an image index with commentary. Recommended for general collections.
