A third-generation New Yorker, Miss Rosen has gone tri-boro. She represents the Bronx, Manhattan, and Brooklyn, where she lives and works as an author and journalist. Everything is Art. Photography. Stories. Poetry. Scene. Drama. Romance. Passion. Intrigue. Glamour. Everything is books. They offer a romance no other medium can touch.
In February 2013, Miss Rosen published her first novel, The Kingdom of Eternal Night, on a blog of the same name. Serialized into 39 parts, each chapter of the novel is illustrated by a photograph as it begins; artists featured include including Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Erwin Blumenfeld, Eric Johnson, Daido Moriyama, Nadar, Ruby Ray, and Francis Wolff.
A gripping portrait of decadence at the end of the second millennium, The Kingdom of Eternal Night mixes drugs, sex, violence, and degradation with the spoils of a lost generation. Set over the course of three days in New York City during the summer of 1998, the novel fuses dramatic action, dream sequences, and flashbacks that provide an intense sequence of seemingly unrelated events that culminate in the tragic but inevitable demise of one of the protagonists.
Miss Rosen currently writes about photography for the award-winning newsletter Le Journal de la Photographie. She has profiled Albert Watson for Martha Graham, Mario Testino for El Museo, Egyptian revolutionary Aliaa Magda Elmahdy, Trolley Books publisher Gigi Giannuzzi, and insurrectionist, smuggler, and photographer Nat Finkelstein, as well as written over sixty book reviews. She has previously contributed stories to Code (Netherlands), L’Uomo Vogue, Staf (Spain), Swindle, Telegraph (UK), and Whitewall magazines.
From 2000–2009, Miss Rosen was the Senior Vice President of Marketing & Publicity for powerHouse Books, a photography and illustrated book publisher based in Brooklyn. In 2005 she launched Miss Rosen Editions, her own imprint focusing on contemporary urban culture. She published 15 art, photography, memoir, and fiction titles with authors including Boogie, Martha Cooper, and Charlie Ahearn. Miss Rosen also launched powerHouse magazine, a twice-yearly publication organized around a single theme, equal parts cultural investigation, exhibition catalogue, and product brochure.
As Vice President of Marketing & Publicity, Miss Rosen conceptualized and executed campaigns for some 45 books annually, and produced hundreds of book events including cocktail parties, exhibitions, musical performances, readings, lectures, and slide shows. Her career highlights include the Vandal Squad panel discussion at the powerHouse Arena; “We B*Girlz: A 25th Anniversary Breakin’ Event at Lincoln Center Out of Doors”; the graffiti episode of NBC’s “The Apprentice”; and the Hilhaven Lodge party at Robert Evans’ Beverly Hills estate.
Miss Rosen has lectured at Columbia University, the International Center of Photography, and the School of Visual Arts, all in New York. She has been featured in publications including aRUDE, Eyemazing. Juxtapoz, Paper Magazine’s 9th Annual “Beautiful People” Issue, Photo District News, Spread ArtCulture, and Style Monte Carlo.
