Director of Photography NY
Photographer and director from NY has always been drawn to the human image and the uniqueness of each individual. He became fascinated in playing with light and shadows that sculpt and transform the face.
Initially he started out photographing short documentaries of cinemagraphic points of view, telling each human’s personal stories. But this wasn’t enough for Roy; something was missing. He was searching for his niche to be able to show and express one’s true calling and inner desires by capturing specific instance in a single frame, telling an entire story.
After opening a studio in Milan in 2007, Roy began collaborating with big named stylists in the industry. In due time, his matchless talent got recognized and started working with local and international fashion houses. His talent grew to the point where he did a shot in Esquire Magazine’s story on the 20th anniversary for Dolce&Gabbana. This created new mediums by changing the generic presumptions of photography.
Roy began applying animation in his photographs with a parallax effect, creating moving frames and animated human movements. Again, exceeding expectations, he produced a new visual attempt at expressing language to fashion and the still life world. His movement has placed a mark on imagery and photography. He created his own presentation, “Institutionalized”, of an animated fashion film by DSQUARED2 in 2014 which placed his work in La Jolla Fashion Film Awards (2014), London Fashion Film Awards (2015) and NYC Winter Fashion Film Awards (2015). His lively images are now his signature,"I believe i became a photographer the moment i stopped looking and started seeing". Con Art has had the pleasure of working with Roy for several years now, as our Director of Photography in New York.
