Curt Rosner began photographing at the age of 12, when his father gave him an old Kodak Retina camera. As he began taking pictures, Curt quickly realized that the world was presented in a different context when looking through the viewfinder. It did not take long for his interest in photography to become a life-long passion. As a practicing CPA, he has developed a critical eye for detail. This attention to detail combined with a need for creativity is the driving force that has fueled his journey as an artist.
Photography has become a means of expression for Curt; providing him with a sense of place and a medium to tell a story. In making a photograph, he attempts to capture the moment in a way that creatively conveys his emotions, feelings and opinions to the viewer. Curt’s style is unmistakable; bold colors and crisp details are key characteristics of his images. He believes that the essence of making good images is understanding the properties of light and capturing it at just the precise moment.
Curt’s appreciation for photography stems from the way in which it has taught him to see the world. Street photography, landscapes and people are the genres he enjoys shooting the most. His passion for photography can be summed up in one of his favorite quotes from Ansel Adams: “You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
