Kent Rogowski’s Everything I Wish I Could Be: "I liked the idea that I could create images that would represent individual moments in life using the books that were written to soothe and help with those moments.”
Artist Kent Rogowski’s Everything I Wish I Could Be is an exploration of language, emotions and the desire to change and improve. Self help books run the gamet, from relationships to death and every topic in between. Rogowski’s photographs these tomes arranged by theme, creating an image of emotions and lives lived through title pages and spines.
I’m not an abstractionist. I’m not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on. ~Mark Rothko
