For many years people have commented about my wonderful life, traveling all over the world making beautiful photographs. The truth is... I am a missionary. My mission is to be one of the caretakers of our world. I will work at this mission by raising the awareness of as many people as possible. Awareness of how beautiful and important our planet is. It is a living-breathing organism. The American Indians knew that over a thousand years ago and taught it to their children. Because there are so many of us now living in this technological era of rapid change, we must not only think of earth as 'mother earth' but also as brother, sister, father and lover earth. We won't make it without her support and she won't make it without ours.
She speaks to us in many languages. The language of wind, rain, bird song, and a silence so profound, it encourages us to reach into the transcendental to seek the source of that silence.
My desire is to reach as many people as possible and convert them into also being a caretaker. On the one hand it doesn't take much convincing and yet there are many people who resist it. But watching the golden leaves fall like snow flakes, watching the waves, listening to nature, sensing nature, all of it stirs within us the call. The call to join with nature and recognize our true selves.
My way of reaching people is through my photographs.
Raising consciousness occurs at the moment of recognition.
We are what we see

Photographic Documentary of Two Disappearing Worcester Temples
Recently two historical Jewish congregations in Worcester, MA made the decision to merge. This meant that both historical buildings will be changed irrevocably forever. The 1940's era building of Temple Emanuel will become a part of Worcester State College, while Temple Sinai which was formed in the 1950's by a group from Temple Emanuel, will have a substantial renovation and expansion. Ron Rosenstock was selected as the photographer to document these historic buildings and this transition in a series of photographs that are now on display at the Jewish Community Center on Salisbury St. in Worcester. There is also a book of his photographs available from this exhibition of Worcester Jewish history. Click here for more information.
