Charles Rozier: House Music
Thought I’d let Charles do the talking from here on out:
I was born in 1951. Like many others I took an interest in photography, or more accurately cameras, at an early age. Then, in college, I discovered the work of Cartier-Bresson and Arbus. This had a profound effect on me, a life-changing experience that forced me to completely rethink what I was trying to accomplish in taking pictures. Eventually it led me to start on what 35 years later would become the current project.
Though not staged, these images differ from the purely documentary in that they generally remain ambiguous; I believe they are more likely to raise questions than give answers. In each one I am searching for an unexpected moment or undertone, captured within an ordinary but formally complete, evocative space.
