Terry Roberts is an East coast based photographer who has created a lifetime of striking images. His interest in and mastery of both editorial and fine art photography have led him to combine techniques and styles, creating a distinctive visual presence. Terry’s editorial photographs, portraits and stunning location work have graced over 200 magazine covers. His easygoing nature, curiosity and enthusiasm lead him to create insightful portraits often referencing historical “archetypes of the hero” in their composition and treatment. Usually created in situ, these photographs are praised for their clarity of content and their direct connection with the viewer. Known also for his range of subject matter, Terry has mastered a distinctive on-site “light painting” technique that gives his garden and landscape images unusual depth and complexity. With his “Possible Worlds” series, he has been engaged to create public art for major institutions. Often large in scale, these commissioned works employ a variety of techniques and combine multiple images, including the architecture and natural features of differing geographic locations. Terry’s photographs have been exhibited nationwide in 20 solo shows and 150 group exhibitions and are held in the collections of 15 major institutions and museums. Over the course of his career, he has also been commissioned to create over 200 works for public display. Born in San Diego to a US Navy family, Terry and his four brothers lived all over the United States, moving every two years. This peripatetic upbringing stimulated the curiosity of an adaptable young man, leading him to travel both outwardly—seeking inspiration from other cultures world wide – and inwardly – on a life-long journey of perception and spirit. In all his work, Terry Roberts seeks to create images that speak and art that endures.
