Born in Moscow, Irina Rozovsky grew up in the Boston area, graduating from Tuffs University. She continued her studies at Massachusetts College of Art and received a MFA in Photography in 2007. She has exhibited in Europe and in the US. Currently, Rozovsky lives in Brooklyn, NY.
Irina Rosovsky describes her photographic style as, “intimate distance”. Here she observes people relaxing or at play often interacting momentarily with beloved pets. The setting for her subjects is frequently a natural, outdoor space, what she calls a “shared public space” like the one here in historic Prospect Park, New York. “I see Prospect Park as a kind of gritty paradise where a complex social reality is played out.”
Unexpectedly neutral, even when photographing historically charged topics like the photographs she made in Israel in her book, “One to Nothing”, published in 2011; Rozovsky is known for her open-ended narratives.
The response to the competition each year has been exciting and brought many talented photographers’ work to the attention of the Museum’s curatorial staff. With the competition, we have added work of twelve very talented arts both experienced and emerging. Limited edition prints of this photograph are available at a cost of $600.
