Roy photographs the world with a pair of loving eyes and a hugging heart.
Ghost towns. Rippling trout streams. Winter wharves. Few artists capture the depth of black and white photography as does Roy Pope. His deep passion for photography takes him through the four seasons to capture the spirit of nature. His images reveal the twisted knots of an aged tree and the sun-weathered paint of an abandoned house...the beauty in things we often overlook. Inspired by his love of nature, Roy photographs the simple things around him and creates images of admiration. One need only encounter a season's beauty to understand why.
Roy resides amongst the shadows of the Superstition Mountains in Arizona where legends dwell, folklore endures, Indian tales flourish, mysteries abound and superstitions breathe.
Roy enjoys and lives his life with Anne (who is a big part of his heart and soul) along with a menagerie of rescued dogs, cats, horses and burros who are enjoying a peaceful life along with any other wildlife that passes by.
Roy's black and white prints are handcrafted using traditional photographic printmaking techniques. This craft is generationally becoming a lost art form. For Roy there is nothing more breathtaking than a black and white photograph.
Roy's photos have recently been published in America 24/7 - A Nation Tells It's Own Story, as well as Getty Images.
Roy also participated in Alan Ross' Field Techniqes for Black and White Photography, his photo is featured in The Ansel Adams Gallery.
