One to Nothing
One to Nothing depicts an Israel we do not see on the news. These images go beyond politics: they do not defend a side or critique the conflict. Here, Israel is seen in the unexpected light of empathetic neutrality, as a mythological backdrop to the age long struggle between man and the dusty, sun bleached landscape of his origin. The score to this existential battle is locked at 1– 0, with no finish line in sight. A loose, subtle, and open-ended narrative, One to Nothing describes a historic tension with unusual observations.
Rozovsky has taught photography at Parsons School of Design at the New School; the International Center of Photography in New York; Art Institute of Boston; Boston University and at the Massachusetts College of Art. Her work has been featured in numerous national and international exhibitions including at the Breda Photo Festival, Netherlands; Haggerty Museum of Art, Milwaukee; Smith College; the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University; Maven Gallery, Berlin; Sasha Wolf Gallery, New York; Fountain Gallery, Brooklyn; Current Gallery, Baltimore; Umbrage Gallery, New York; the New York Photo Festival and most recently, in a solo exhibition at the New England School of Photography, Boston.
