Chapel House Presents The Eternity of Time Photo Exhibit by Tiziana Rozzo

Tiziana Rozzo is a fine art photographer based in Boston who visually investigates the connection between identity and cultural history. She believes in the power that photography has not only to tell a story, but also as a way of observation, self-reflection and emotional expression.

Inspired by the composer Olivier Messiaen’s relationship with time, Rozzo aims to create a space within her images that reinvents the experience of silence in music and in the natural world. She says,

"It is known that in music the measures of silence are not waiting periods. These pauses of sound can be found in photographs as well and they arouse in the viewer a state of active listening, much like a good conversation."

Like Messiaen, she believes in the power of our imaginations to transform a vision and bring new depths and layers of perception into play.  For this exhibit, Rozzo selected mostly black and white images. Her intent is to allow the viewer to fill those images with the "mind's colors" and to fully participate in the creation of a photographic memory. Her hope is that the public will approach her photographs with their senses enhanced by the music of Olivier Messiaen “Quartet For The End Of Time”, transforming the exhibition space into a gathering place for sharing ideas and cultivating collective and personal memories.

This exhibit opens at 5:30pm, directly following the Ensemble Chamarré performance of the "Quartet for the End of Time" taking place at Chapel House at 4:30pm.
