If you’ve lived in Nelson for more than a few years, there isn’t anyone familiar with the sight of Fred Rosenberg and his Leica cameras.

He’s at every major Nelson event, and scouring the streets in between times for other snippets of neat and unusual people and light.

He’s the Heritage city’s unofficial photographer, and he recently gave some of his insights in a public forum at Self Design High’s TEDx event at the Capitol Theatre.

For those that know him, Rosenberg was as frank and captivating as ever, delivering his view on the art form that has consumed a majority of his creative consciousness for decades.

TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) is a global set of conferences owned by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation, formed to disseminate “ideas worth spreading.”

Self Design High held a Nelson version in April.
