Robert Rosen is one of Australia's foremost social photographers and an astute observer of Sydney Society. At the moment, he's the main photographer at a show celebrating fifteen years of the Australian fahion week collections. All the backstage and party photos are his which is about 80 percent of the photographic show. There is also a video of him talking about his experiences over the past fifteen years of Australian fashion week called “frockstars” at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.

Rosen is known for his tantalising shots of people who have put Australian fashion on the global market. His subjects are flattered to have their photographs taken by him, and Rosen's photos record the glamour, drama and fun that lies beneath the seemingly effortless veneer of Australian fashion.

Robert Rosen is a professional social pages photographer who in the 1980s, worked front row at the European Collections for international and Australian magazines. When he returned to his native Australia, he chose to shoot images for social pages and backstage documentation. His portfolio is stuffed with global celebrities, but his fashion shots are particularly unique. (Pictured is his (2005) photo of Michelle Jank's collection), which illustrates what ann innovative (fashion) photographer he is.
