Rosie Brock – And Ever Shall Be

Rosie Brock

And Ever Shall Be

[ FUJIFILM / YOUNG TALENT AWARD 2018 FINALIST ]

My childhood spent in the American South and the regionally specific encounters I had there served as the key motivation for this body of work. After spending three years in art school in New York City, I felt compelled to return to the area of the country where I had spent my formative years. Amidst the oppressive July air, I sought out individuals and scenes reminiscent of my own youth. The resulting visual narrative focuses on the nuanced relationship between the region’s deep-seated mythicism and its current socioeconomic reality. This confluence of past and present is furthered articulated by the recurring motif of the archetypal county fair.
