About this Item

An exceptional copy; fine in an equally fine dust wrapper. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Literally as new.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 208 pages; Physical description; 208 p. : chiefly ports. (some col.) ; 27 cm. Summary; In the 1980s, a time before Photoshop and plastic surgeons offered picture-perfect complexions, masking even the slightest imperfections, Johnny Rozsa captured the flawless features of Hollywood's fresh crop of celebrity beauty. Rozsa recorded the pristine beauty and the exuberance of 115 stars before they were famous, and shows us what they were like before they began following the plan for eternal youth, an elixir of Botox, surgical procedures, and editorial support in the form of computer generated beauty. From Hugh Grant to Halle Berry, Janet Jackson to Nicholas Cage, John Malkovich to Natasha Richardson, with a special section dedicated the legendary Leigh Bowery, Untouched, Rozsa's first monograph, captures the era's most enduring icons at a time where ingenues rubbed shoulders with luminaries like Charlton Heston, Jane Russell, Joan Collins, Dolly Parton, and Tina Turner. Biography; Johnny Rozsa is a New York-based photographer, specialising in fashion, portrait, and celebrity photography. Rozsa was born and raised in Nairobi, the son of Jewish Hungarian-Czech parents. In the early 1960s he moved to England, where he attended Repton, graduating in 1964.

He later ran a vintage shop called Nostalgia in Covent Garden, where he met fashion editors, models, actors, and photographers on a daily basis. In the mid-1970s Rozsa began his photography career, working in Nairobi, Geneva, England, and the U.S. By 1978, he had a series of four full-page celebrity portraits in Ritz, with accompanying interviews. His photographs have appeared in numerous publications, including Vogue, The Sunday Times, i-D, Maxim, The Face, The New York Times, Newsweek, New York Magazine, and People.
