Rose loves to observe landscapes and personages. She has the sensation and the ability to touch them and get immersed in them. Her studies on shapes and volumes and on the way they will integrate light is a passion that always anticipates a new plastic representation. Her photographs are fragments of her surroundings or known realities that sometimes, might get a new meaning and a new orientation and become suddenly just pure poetry, losing their established order rigidity and getting free to idle.
