His latest series, Boswijck, is a beautified perspective of the Bushwick area. Bushwick, is a working-class neighborhood of Brooklyn having mostly Germanic population. The series itself resembles the Paracosmic Houses by Katharina Fitz series. However, in this work the houses seem like created by cardboard.
Boswijck, the original name of the area, means “little town in the woods“. Rozenberg photographed several different architectural styles within the area that co-exist. As each house has each one structure and colours, he isolated them by using a cardboard on-top of the photographs. In fact, each cupboard has the same colours of the house. By using this technique, highlights further the heterogeneity of this neighborhood. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
