Born in Brooklyn New York, Trix Rosen is an NY/NJ based photographer. Her career has also embraced the fields of fine art photography, photojournalism, portraiture and historic architectural preservation
The scope of her fine art is driven by a desire to make a difference through addressing social justice issues that can transform local and global perspectives. Her portfolios include investigations of gender fluidity, the right of gender self-determination and other social justice and identity-related issues.
