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

It’s been just over 50 years since a man clutching a handful of brochures walked into a Cambridge camera shop and changed Ron Rosenstock’s life forever. The man was Minor White, the influential American photographer and teacher.

Recently released ... "Emptiness"

Grateful thanks Gabriel!
The gift book of your haiku and Ron’s photographs is stunning! Wonderful in all regards and filled with truly haunting images by Ron that go so beautifully with your poetry responses ...
So glad to see this masterpiece collaboration between you two .. Emptiness is filled with a brilliance of feeling for the ephemeral, the emptiness and the expanse of spaces that bring us further into our heart and soul on this journey through the always now..
— Gratefully, Tom Clausen

"Emptiness sounded like a good title for this new book with Ron Rosenstock, the American master photographer whose life quest has been to expose with his lens those prayerful moments that illumine themselves in haiku" - Gabriel Rosenstock

Click here to read the review of "Emptiness"
in The Irish Times.

"Emptiness", a collaborative digital work of text and image that draws out what lies 'between the finite and the infinite'. The scenes captured through Ron's photography, devoid of human figures, allow us to re-engage with these environments through the unique moments of stillness which photography and poetry allow.  In turns meditative and precise, the haiku form, composed in Irish and English by Gabriel Rosenstock and accompanied by Japanese translations by Mariko Sumikura, enables Gabriel to explore these scenes for their traces of history and the revelations which can be attained from them, extending across languages and landscapes.
