“Walking on Broken Glass,” (2016) is a collaged documentary image that depicts one destructive event during years of terrorism by my landlord before I was gentrified out of my loft in NYC. Homes can often be a place of terrible pain and violence.
“Trix Rosen’s ‘WALKING ON BROKEN GLASS’ conveys the violence that attempted to evict her from her house.” Laura Kruger, curator

My photography has been driven by a life-long desire to make a difference through projects that address vital social justice issues and have a positive and transformative effect on the world.
For over thirty-five years, my career has embraced the fields of fine art, photojournalism, portraiture and historic architectural preservation. With an instinct to find the story at the heart of every project, I look to the deeply etched memories in the stones and structures with the same passion that I look to the defining gesture and moment of truth in my portraits and documentary essays.
Compassion, respect and a generosity of spirit are essential components to creating tools of visual advocacy.
