The Photography of Ron Rosenstock
By Paul Caponigro
Ron has worked within the tradition of large-format landscape photography for many years and comes to it with caring and a simple love of the craft. His eye surveys the external world as if inquiring; his images offer us intimations of answers. The elements of his subjects seem to align themselves to his quiet intent. Cloud, water, stone and mist-drenched and sun-gleamed flora arrange themselves in his photographs much like iron filings aligning to a magnet. Within this realm of affirmation we hear the quiet “whisperings” of his silver manipulations. His revelations, and our own, soon follow.
Ron’s images not only convey the grace of fine tradition but also his gratitude to those masters of photography who provided him with a foundation in the value of the craft. His photographs bespeak the peace and poise that come from attuning himself to the medium and to his own world. What appears to be longing in Ron’s photographs mirrors the longing we all feel for the spirit concealed from view. Mystery seems to be gentle with Ron; he accepts the challenge of discovery without brooding excessively over veiled treasures. Through the camera he sustains his search for connections with such mysteries. We see in his photographs his perseverance towards the greater flight.
