Overview

Features more than 200 photographs, including rare vintage silver prints developed by Hartman in her home studio, as well as a group of never-before-seen images of New York City's underground style icons.

Chronicling a world of beauty and style, photographer Rose Hartman has captured fashion's trendsetters for three decades, and in so doing has helped to define what we remember most about glamour and those who create it.

Incomparable: Women of Style is a book for fashion aficionados, photography and popular culture fans, and those fascinated with celebrity. This gorgeous volume spans more than 35 years and includes both iconic and rarely seen pictures of celebrated women known for their unparalleled taste and style: Nan Kempner, Jerry Hall, Marisa Berenson, Jackie O., Brooke Astor, Grace Jones, Anna Wintour, Paloma Picasso, Lauren Hutton, Diane von Furstenberg, Daisy Olarte de Kanovas, Rachael Zoe, Candace Bushnell, and Daphne Guinness among many others.

Rose Hartman's lens has given order to the chaos of openings, runways shows, and couture's triumphs and tragedies, by letting the viewer see the substance behind the form. With her photographs appearing worldwide in books and magazines, she has distinguished herself as a photographer whose eye is so keen, even her candid work has the finish and insight of portraiture. What one fails to realize is that many of the photographs associated with a style, an event, and an era, have belonged to Hartman, whether it is Bianca Jagger on a white horse as she enters Studio 54, or Isabella Rossellini at a private dinner in the Hamptons.
