Ron Rosenstock has been creating images of the world and its people since the 1950's. His work has had many incarnations from vivid colors to black and white, from the darkroom to digital, from large format cameras to full-frame digital, from early dawn to infrared dusk. His images are real, though real is hardly subjective. Viewed in objective terms, color is far more real than black and white is - if only because color is such a defining element of reality as experienced by the human eye.
His reality is more real than it would be if you were standing next to him the moment he makes the exposure. His view of the world developed from his correspondence with Ansel Adams, his work in study groups from 1967 to 1973 with his teacher Minor White and his time as a private student of Paul Caponigro. Born in 1943, he earned his MA degree in Photography from Goddard College and has been an instructor of photography since 1967 primarily at Clark University. He has exhibited his work in more than 100 shows worldwide and is featured in numerous permanent exhibitions including the Fogg Art Museum, the Worcester Art Museum, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the International Center of Photography.
Ron has published six books of his photographs and written numerous articles on the art and craft of photography. We has been featured on the WGBH nightly news with Emily Rooney in Boston and numerous cable programs around New England.
