New York City is renowned for its cultural and ethnic diversity; it was in Manhattan’s Lower East Side that the term ‘melting pot’ was coined, and the city continues to be the leading gateway for immigrants starting afresh in the United States.
This multiculturalism is reflected in the city’s architecture. A Bushwick resident for the past eight year, Rozenberg was intrigued by the mixed architectural history of the area and its constantly changing citycape; he also realized that the uniqueness of many constructions often gets overlooked.
“I started photographing buildings next to where I lived, at first from rooftops above then from street level across” he writes. After isolating buildings from their surroundings through the lens, he used digital manipulation to further deconstruct these facades to emphasise their forms and colors.
