Chris DeRosa Photography: Pictures From Terra Firma
Chris DeRosa

I began my fascination with photography back at the University of Miami where I studied under the tutelage of several Magnum alumni teaching at the school of photo journalism. There I learned to use the natural light and surroundings to create a frame "Gorilla Photography" rather than using artificial sources to compose one in. Since traveling is a passion and wanderlust is in my blood, I have captured "Moments In Time" from over 50 different countries from around the world. I feel learning only really takes place when you involve all of your senses. By traveling one gets a chance to take in cultures more deeply through sound, smell, taste, and touch. Here I hope to tempt you with sight to spark your curiosity and inspire many journeys of your own.
If you are interested in purchasing a limited edition 11" x 14" (or custom) print or using one of my photographs from the pictures seen on this site in some way please feel free to contact me at photo (at) chrisderosa (dot) net.
