Rose Hartman, whose work has been published in magazines like Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, and Vanity Fair, has been granted the kind of celebrity access in her 35-year career that most photographers can only dream about. The "social historian" shot Jerry Hall and Diana Vreeland in the seventies, Jackie Onassis in the eighties, and Anna Wintour (smiling!) at Christie's in the nineties, to name a few of her widely circulated images. Earlier this year, an exhibit of her work opened at the Gladys Marcus Library at F.I.T., and now she has a new book, Incomparable: Women of Style, coming out next month. It features more than 200 photographs, including the famous shot of Bianca Jagger riding a white horse into Studio 54 for her birthday party in 1977 — "the picture that encapsulated an era when decadence ruled," as Hartman calls it. Click through our slideshow for a preview of the book, out December 16.
