Photo by G. Art by Johnny Rozsa.
Happy birthday to artist Johnny Rozsa! Johnny has focused on photographing fashion and celebrities in his career and the list of people that have been in front of his camera is very impressive. He’s photographed everyone from Leigh Bowery to Sade. You should definitely check out his book “Untouched,” a collection of some of his work. As you look through it, you’ll definitely recognize many of his iconic photos. The first time I met Johnny was at a launch party for “Untouched” and I was floored by how nice he was to me. Usually at openings, the artist can be pretty mobbed as everyone wants to talk to them, but that night, Johnny not only made time to talk with me and my friend, but he also showed us a hand-made prototype of what would become “Untouched” (which was also extremely cool). Months later, I ran into him at another opening and not only did he remember meeting me, but he told me he started reading this site – and I don’t think I can ever get over it! Too cool. Johnny, thanks for being a genuinely nice person. Thank for all the great art you’ve made and continue to make and most importantly, have a fantastic birthday!
