Born and raised in Washington, DC, Rose Borden moved to Oakland, CA eight years ago after spending more than a decade in New York, NY. She is a photographer who shoots mostly digitally and prefers to use existing light to shoot mainly black and white abstract/experimental images and interesting captures while traveling. She is obsessed with showing the world in a unique way, but with very little manipulation.
As a current member of the Bay Area Photographers Collective (BAPC), starting September 15th, 2018, four of Rose’s images will be included in the BAPC exhibition, Of Dreams and Reality, at the Berkeley Art Center, curated by Ann Jastrab. She has exhibited images in other art spaces in the Bay Area (i.e., ARC Studios & Gallery, ProArts, CityArt, Pina Zingaro/Mullen Brothers, Viscera, Faction Brewery, and Right Angle), as well as in New York (i.e., Queens Botanical Garden), and Yokohama, Japan (in conjunction with Samurai Foto at Subway Gallery M).
A graduate of The George Washington University in Washington, DC, she earned a B.A. in Psychology with a double minor in Fine Art/Art History and Sociology. Rose works as a digital photo retoucher for clients in San Francisco and nationally. You may learn more about her retouching work by going to: RoseBordenDigital.com.
