Roy often describes himself as a nature photographer but for him the natural world is not a world apart but one that is all-inclusive. Photographing affords a way of affirming and exploring the world we share with all manner of animate and inanimate matter. When he goes out with a camera one of the most critical issues is psychological: navigating the invisible barrier between perceiver and perceived. When this dualistic framing of perception is dropped the subject matter has the possibility to suggest intimations of completeness in the world – where affinity is conjoined with expanse.
Roy was actively involved in photography for a decade before an MFA at the University of Delaware, including teaching photography in Boston and in Tennessee and exhibiting in Boston, Atlanta and Nashville. After art school he taught photography at Burlington County Community College in NJ and at a secondary school in Maryland, and had work curated into several shows.
Roy's solo shows include Atticus Café, George Street Gallery, European Café, in New Haven, CT, Hamden Hall Country Day School, Hamden, CT, Janvier Gallery, Newark, DE and Tenessee Historical Commission, Nashville, TN. Group and two person shows include City Wide Open Studios, Cloud Nine, Artspace, New Haven, CT, New Haven Lawn Club, New Haven, CT, Silk Road Art Gallery, New Haven, CT, PhotoPlace Gallery, Middlebury, VT, Darkroom Gallery, Essex Junction, VT, and Barratt Art Center, Poughkeepsie, NY among many others.
