As a Visual Reporter at The Providence Journal, Connie Grosch created an award-winning “visuals beat” of state government, documenting action and events in the state legislature and the governor’s office for 17 years. She was involved daily in public hearings, bill introductions and debate, developing a genuine interest in and knowledge of public policy and legislative issues. Her behind-the-scenes images of state government appeared in print as well as on The Journal website, as a "week in review" slideshow.
As a Feature Columnist, also at The Journal, Grosch initiated concepts and developed proposals, prototypes and the execution of three different columns: A Wedding, Love Stories, and Working. These columns have drawn a tremendous following and elicited much enthusiasm from readers, and were applauded by the newspaper’s publisher and managing editor.
As a Photo Assignment Editor, she has regularly worked with reporters, editors and photographers in coordinating and assigning photo coverage, participating in daily news meetings to determine story and photo placement in the newspaper, and collaborating with photographers in generating enterprise photo and video ideas.
Grosch has also lived and photographed in Europe, creating images of daily life in Germany and Poland. She currently resides in Providence, Rhode Island.
