In late 2008 photographer Irina Rozovsky (*1981 in Moscow) traveled through Israel with three cousins in a rental car. What began as an unassuming two-week journey resulted in a photographic turning point, yielding a complicated and surprising body of images. Two years later she returned to look further at an Israel we do not see on the news. The photographs in "One to Nothing" are not political: they do not defend a side or critique the conflict. Instead, Israel here is a mythological backdrop to the age long struggle between man and the dusty, sun bleached landscape of his origin. The score to this existential battle is locked at 1 0, with no finish line in sight. A loose, subtle, and open-ended narrative "One to Nothing" describes an unusual tension with striking and delicate observations.
Irina Rozovsky has exhibited in Europe and the US. She was awarded a 2009 Finalist Grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and was a finalist for the 2010 Magnum Expression Award.
