Rossa Cole: "My father and my mother were both big in the New York Literary scene, I like to say that I grew up 'At the knees of the greats', meaning I was only tall enough to see the knees of authors like James Baldwin, George Plimpton, Seamus Heaney, Betty Friedan, Joseph Heller and the likes at the cocktail parties my parents would drag me to. As a result, I had no "starstruck" in me, an actor was just a person in the arts, just like me."Rossa Cole - has more than 30 years' experience shooting people. Rossa's shooting style is unobtrusive yet omnipresent. Rossa was the staff photographer for the East Hampton Star, he also shot extensively on the streets and clubs of NYC in the 90's, before Paparazzi was a bad word.

His portraits are personable and poetic, showing true character.
