Piece description from the artist
A tagine is an historically Berber dish from North Africa, that is named after the special earthenware pot in which it is cooked. The traditional tajine pot is formed entirely of a heavy clay, which is sometimes painted or glazed. It consists of two parts: a base unit that is flat and circular with low sides, and a large cone or dome-shaped cover that sits on the base during cooking. The cover is so designed to promote the return of all condensation to the bottom. With the cover removed, the base can be taken to the table for serving.
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.
