Piece description from the artist
This landscape was taken on the island of Terceira, one of nine islands in the Atlantic that make up the Azores. After a violent earthquake in 1980, and the subsequent reconstruction of the city, a large portion of the city of Angra's historical center has been classified of "public interest", and is included in the UNESCO's list of World Patrimony since 1986. Angra do Heroismo also features one of the best public libraries and archives in Portugal and also retains some important private art collections in addition to amazing landscapes such as those seen here.
A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Charlie Rosenberg has been a photographer since the 1970s. Enamored with black and white in his early career he now seeks out bright colors but you will see an occasional black and white image in his portfolio. His work generally illustrates the hidden architectural gems found while traveling abroad.
After moving to Boston in 1989, Charlie fell in love with the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of the city. His work appears in a series of nine books published by Arcadia Publishers documenting the history of Boston’s neighborhoods. His most recent work features Cuba, Azores, and France.
