Jack and John welcome to the show a fantastic photographer and all-around great guy, Ron Rosenstock. Ron is a world traveller who has amassed an amazing portfolio of images, both in color and in monochrome. He is currently exploring the world of infrared and how to interpret scenes with this cool twist on digital imaging. Listen in to the conversation as they discuss a multitude of photography topics.
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 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.
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. Ron still continues to exhibit his work, most recently at The National Museum of Iceland, lectures at camera clubs and professional organizations and serves as a Board member of NANPA (The North American Nature Photography Association). He also leads tours around the world for professional and amateur photographers including Bhutan, Iceland, Italy, Morocco, New Zealand, Greenland and Cuba.
