Piece description from the artist
In recent times, Cappadocia became famous for its unique landscape of valleys and unusual rock formations. The formation of this strange landscape started during the third geological period, when three volcanoes located on the edges of this region began erupting frequently. The deposits of volcanoes ash, lava and basalt laid the foundations for today's landscape. Earthquakes and ongoing effects of erosion have contributed to form the valleys and the "fairy chimneys" that can be seen today.
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.
