About the Book
"Pieces" is Gregory Rothstein's newest photographic project. It blends portraiture and still life into one as the book explores individuals relationships to material objects or their bodies. "Pieces" is going to be hopefully a long term career project for Rothstein as he now embarks into the real world post graduation. If this book is any indication of what Gregory Rothstien is capable of, he is most definitely someone to keep your eye on in the photographic world.
"I almost find bios such as these challenging. You see, I love to talk, more importantly I love to talk about myself and tell people about myself, because I consider myself quite an interesting human being. However finding the words to talk about myself I feel is difficult at times. By nature, I am loud, obnoxious, and most importantly funny. Creativity has always been something very close to me, whether it was creating my own Lego sets, writing the two movie scripts I have completed or making elaborate excuses as to why the dishes never got done I have always found ways to be creative and express who I am. I want all of this to be demonstrated in my work, whether it be in a single print or in a book. The visual arts are truly something I am passionate about.
