Irina Rozovsky | In Plain Air

"I wish I had more time for my child, I wish I had more time for my work, I wish I had more time for the Humid…"

Irina Rozovsky and I talk about her work being included in MOMA’s New Photography 2020, her new book, In Plain Air, running workshops at The Humid, and just life in general during Covid.

Irina Rozovsky (born in Moscow, raised in the US), makes photographs of people and places, transforming external landscapes into interior states. She has published three monographs (One to Nothing 2011, Island in my Mind 2015, and In Plain Air 2021). Her work is exhibited internationally and is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and has appeared in The New Yorker, New York Times Magazine, Harpers, and Vice. Irina lives and works in Athens, Georgia where she and her husband Mark Steinmetz run the photography project space The Humid. Irina is represented by Claxton Projects.
