"'Chiostro, Photographs of Italy', photographer, Ron Rosenstock's second volume, is a visual delight. As he did in his earlier book, 'The Light of Ireland', Rosenstock demonstrates a reverence for natural light and its effect on the landscape. Here, not only has he revealed the splendor of the rural countryside but he also has shown the elegance of the duomos, basilicas and small churches that dominate the cities and towns. In addition, a number of photographs isolate the beauty in the details and smaller components of the environment. The images of a cluster of lilies, shadows on an archway, or light falling on a staircase are as effective as the larger landscapes. Looking at this wonderful book is a peaceful and enjoyable experience. For anyone who appreciates fine black and white photography, 'Chiostro, Photographs of Italy', is a must. "

"CHIOSTRO is Beautiful!!! In this, his second volume of photographs (the first is The Light of Ireland), photographer Ron Rosenstock takes us, by his own secret ways, into the spirit of Italy. In cloister and village, in vineyard and field, and sometimes, somewhat surprisingly, in the heart of bustling Venice and Florence, Rosenstock reveals the sacred spirit behind and beyond our "normal" vision. These 42 elegant black-and-white images invite hours of quiet contemplation. Photographers will find a bonus here . . .a brief chapter entitled, "Simplifying the Zone System," which outlines part of the creative process behind these evocative photographs. If Italy calls to you, if you seek a view of the mystery that surrounds us, or if, simply, you take pleasure in photography in the hands of a master, CHIOSTRO belongs in your collection. "
