Description: In the 1980s—a time before Photoshop and plastic surgeons began masking even the slightest imperfections in our celebrities—Johnny Rozsa captured the native beauty of young Hollywood stars, mature icons, and stage entertainers. Few of the 160 black and white and color photos here have been published before; all of them are un-retouched portraits, giving us remarkable images of 115 personalities—many of them still largely unknown when Rozsa photographed them.
Here are Hugh Grant and Halle Berry, Janet Jackson and Nicolas Cage, Snoop Dogg and Natasha Richardson, Leigh Bowery and Ione Skye, Muhammad Ali and Boy George, Charlton Heston and Joan Collins, Dolly Parton and Tina Turner.
