Over the past year, Ron Rosenstock has been traveling more than ever and experiencing new places such as Greenland and Scotland as well as old places in new ways such as Tuscany and Ireland. He will be exhibiting his latest images from his travels at the Providence Art Club from April 22nd through May 11th with an opening reception from 12 to 3 on April 22nd.
These latest images entitled "Light Celebrating Itself" really demonstrate Ron's philosophy that a meaningful photograph is not a photo of something but is something in itself. A photograph that is only subject matter is seen and quickly reduced to a memory of the chosen subject. A meaningful photograph is so much more. As with a meditative experience, there is no end to its possible depth. Not only is such a photograph an interpretation of the light that falls on the original subject matter, it is also a magical combination of that quality of light and a delicate balance achieved by light and dark areas in the image. Perhaps there exists an ancient formula for the proportions of light and dark areas within a print required to evoke in the viewer a profound depth of meaning. As with other forms of art through the ages, photography can connect us with this deeper meaning. Each of us seeks a direction in life without knowing the final destination. As artists and seekers we are drawn by a creative force to the Light within and so begin our life’s journey.
