Rachel Rosenthal

Photographer, Explorer, Chaser of Light


It all started way back when…

I'm Rachel Rosenthal, a photographer.  Sounds strange to say and strange to read after years spent as an oil field engineer, mathematics professor, and community college president. It's a title realized after years spent in the background. Always present, but existing only as time, and life, allowed.  

And now, it's finally time to claim it.  

Photographer, explorer, chaser of light. That's what I do and what I seek. I've "chased the light" in over 50 countries on six continents, with more in the planning stages.  My goal is to capture images of lands and cultures that transcend the moment with a touch of wonder, making human nature tangible. 

One viewer said it best, "You have such a way of transporting people" that allows the viewer to "paint with their own imagination." 

Yes, that's it exactly.
