ABOUT THE ARTIST
Bruce Rosenstiel Biography for Endangered Species Exhibit
Bruce Rosenstiel was drawn to photography by his fascination with wildlife and world cultures. He enjoys photographing all manner of flora and fauna to reveal the extraordinary, and often unseen, diversity and beauty of nature.
Likewise, Bruce’s cultural portraits seek to make the foreign accessible by diffusing barriers of difference, creating a visual language of images that focuses on themes of universal human experience: work, play, worship, sorrow, joy.
Bruce’s Small World is dedicated to fostering environmental stewardship and cross-cultural understanding, by highlighting the bonds and behaviors between species and across communities, communicating through images when there is no shared spoken language.
He began his journey as a birder. Watching for and identifying birds taught him to slow down and observe the details of his surroundings leading to an interest in nature overall. When he finally picked up a camera, he focused on flowers, insects, butterflies, and all manner of flora and fauna.
Beginning in 2009, he has taught classes through the Southlake and Grapevine, TX Parks and Recreation departments. He currently teaches introductory and intermediate photography and Adobe Lightroom to adults of all ages. He is the founder and president of the BJNC Camera Club.
He and his wife have co-lead Culture and Photography Tours to Oaxaca, Mexico, Peru, and France.
His work has appeared in many publications and websites and has been selected for many juried exhibits.
Art Exhibit Viewing Times: Monday - Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. and during other special events.
