Ron Rosenstock Multi-Media
I am a huge fan of fine art and nature multi-media and have experimented with it a bit here. Nature speaks to us on multiple channels. When you’re out in the world you don’t just see. Experience encompasses what we hear and feel as well. All that being said, I think good multi-media is hard to pull off. It is easy to go too long, too short, too everything, and lose the viewer.
I have mentioned Ron Rosenstock’s work here before as well. He is one of our finest and most productive fine art photographers. I’m very grateful for his support the last few years. Ron’s work, particularly his books, often try to capture the more complex feel of his appreciation of nature through the use of accompanying poetry. He recently alerted me to a new multi-media work, inspired by his book, The Light Within, in which his imagery is accompanied by a new musical composition from Eugene Skeef, a noted South African composer. In addition, the piece contains haiku by Gabriel Rosenstock (no relation I gather) with whom Ron has collaborated in the past. Too often, multi-media pieces though struggle and seem to take forever. For me, this one just flies by. Enjoy.
