Claire Rosen’s photography is known for its magical, fairy-tale aesthetic, and her latest series “Nostalgia: A Study in Color” is in keeping with these themes. For this series, Rosen chose to photograph items of childhood yore alongside pieces with dark undertones. Doll heads lie among hammers and wasps nests in one, and flowers fall casually next to a skeleton in another. These juxtapositions give the photos an exhilarating quality that transports the viewer back to an earlier time when simple toys evoked the same kind of mystery, awe, and excitement just by themselves. The objects were divided by color, so each picture has its own unique color scheme.
