Photographer Ron Rosenstock's Sacred Places

Article by Joshua Lyford in Worcester Magazine, March 9, 2019

While his imagery takes center stage, the man has spent 50 years bringing photography travel groups to faraway places like Ireland, Iceland and Italy. With the opening of his Sacred Places exhibit at the Sprinkler Factory, 38 Harlow St., Saturday, March 30, Rosenstock’s work comes home.

If you live in the Wachusett region, then you are lucky enough to be in Ron Rosenstock's neighborhood.  You may have seen a lengthy recent article in the Wachusett Landmark about Ron's new project, "Emptiness". 

"Each morning Holden resident, world traveler, and internationally recognized photographer Ron Rosenstock makes a conscious effort to enjoy the aroma of shaving cream on his face.  It’s a tactic, he said, to tune into the present.

“People are always rushing, always trying to get ahead, but they are missing out on something special,” said Rosenstock, who has devoted his life’s work to creating a contagious appreciation of the earth through photography.

His most recent work and sixth publication, an eBook titled “Emptiness,” provides a kind of meditative experience for the reader. The book pairs his photographs with haikus written in English, Gaelic, and Japanese by internationally renowned poet, Gabriel Rosenstock (who coincidentally has the same last name)."

"The Invisible Light" an article of Ron Rosenstock published in the Italian Literature magazine Margutte

A meaningful photograph is not a photo of something but is something in itself. A photograph that is only its subject matter is seen and quickly reduced to a memory of the particular subject. A meaningful photograph is so much more. As with a meditative and creative experience, there is no end to its possible depth.

Raising consciousness through the medium of art

“Through photography I have sought to explore the space between the finite and the infinite. For me, infrared photography is on the borderline, the veil between the known and the unknown … a search for what is beyond the doorway of perception. What draws me—what speaks to me—is the mystery …”

Ron Rosenstock, teacher and photographer, has been leading photo tours in different locations throughout the world since 1970. A Massachusetts resident, he has had more than 100 exhibits of his work in the United States and Europe. The author of four books, his most recent publication, The Invisible Light, is a collaboration of photography and verse with Irish poet, Gabriel Rosenstock.

In this week’s guest post for The Culturium, Ron expounds his creative vision, his love for infrared photography and how art is a portal to recognizing our truest selves.

"Life Lighting His Lens", an article in the Mayo News of Ireland

IT was on one of those early trips in the 1970s to Clare Island when American pho- tographer, Ron Rosenstock decided to impress the late Michael Joe O’Malley with his knowledge of the 18th century German philosopher, Immanuel Kant. So there they are sitting drinking O’Malley’s homemade hooch (or mead, as he called it) in the shadow of his big open fire in the village of Ballytoughy Mór when the philosophy major from Worcester, Massa- chusetts quotes a short tract from the ‘Prolegom- ena to Any Future Metaphysics’, draws a breath and awaits a gasp of affirmation. Instead, the island philosopher – with his inimitable low-key delivery – simply continues reciting at least another two pages of the tract.

“I never tried that stunt again,” Ron Rosenstock tells The Mayo News.
