PhotoAccess is delighted to present Jocelyn Rosen’s ‘Night and Day’ in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY at the Manuka Arts Centre.

“Unlike the more formalist work seen in most HUW DAVIES GALLERY exhibitions, Jocelyn Rosen’s images have the immediacy and strong sense of immersion in place and time that candid photography can achieve.

Are these images the decisive moments of her life at a particular point in time?

I don’t think she is inclined to say it in words but, clearly, there is a strong storyline in the selection and titling of the works suggesting a period of sorrow, loneliness and reflection.

A number of images refer to the life and passing of her grandfather in ways that could not be captured more eloquently in words.

I am pleased others suggest optimism, friendship and humour and seem to imply, maybe, that her next major body of work will have a different tone altogether.” – David Chalker,  PhotoAccess Director.
