Boswijck

  • Photographer
    Niv Rozenberg

My work explores complexities within the urban environment,
shifting between straight photography and digital manipulation. I
am fascinated by the way in which the place I live in functions, and
the constantly changing appearance of my surroundings. The
series “Boswijck” focuses on the unique cityscape of Bushwick
neighborhood in Brooklyn NY. I am intrigued by the
neighborhood’s colorful and mixed architecture and history. The
work titled “Boswijck” – the neighborhood’s original name,
meaning “little town in the woods” – highlights this diversity by
visually isolating different architectural styles, deconstructing
these facades to a variety of forms and colors, and showing them
as vivid abstract two-dimensional relics.
