ROME X PARIS

Barry Oretsky


Renowned realist painter and photographer Oretsky cites a lifelong love affair with both Rome and Paris as a primary influence on his journey as an artist. He captures a wide range of images while exploring the juxtaposition of modern life and antiquity in these two European capitals. The fusion of classical and contemporary subject matter is significant to his photography as it allows him to draw from, and reflect upon, current and past experiences.
