Claire Rosen – Profile

Claire Rosen is a fashion and fine art photographer, video artist and educator. She loves big dresses, vintage taxidermy and adventures. Much of her inspiration comes from fairy tales, fables and other children’s stories. She is drawn both to beauty and darkness as it exists in life, and her images explore this duality.

In 2010, Claire’s commercial work was recognized by Communication Arts Photography Annual, International Photography Awards, Prix de la Photographie, Sony World Awards, Artists Wanted: Exposure as well as The Art Project: W Magazine. Her fine art series has received awards in the self portrait category of the International Photography Awards in 2010 and the Prix de la Photographie in 2009.

Claire is currently represented by Verve Gallery, Gallery 51 and Asymmetrick Arts; her fine art work has been exhibited widely and is included in many public and private collections. She has been featured in Direct Art, Creative Quarterly Journal, Communication Arts Insights, Photocine News and The Montclair Times.
