Michelle Cruz Rosado, Palm Beach, FL Member Since May 2007 Artist Statement Besides being a business owner and professional speaker, my great passion in life is photography. Ansel Adams said it best, "You don't take a photograph, you make it." I believe that when you place your eye behind a camera lens, your perception broadens to unimaginable levels. Traveling throughout the US and the world, as well as seeing the beauty of my old neighborhood in New York City has helped me understand the uniqueness of this place we call Earth.
Through my photography I seek to document my own personal experiences and share them with the world. As a survivor of the tragedy of September 11, 2001, the experience has since opened my eye to a new beginning in photography.
Today I license images for all manner of commercial and editorial use and sell photographic art prints. My work has been featured on CNN, FOX, NBC and MSNBC, and includes subjects ranging from panoramic landscapes to people and local culture to abstracts. I shoot with 35mm film cameras, and with a digital SLR.
