Feick Arts Center: ‘Telling Stories’ Showcases Photojournalist
The William Feick Arts Center at Green Mountain College in Poultney, Vt. announces an upcoming exhibit of work by Brooklyn, N.Y. photographer Radcliffe “Ruddy” Roye. Originally from Jamaica, Roye began was a journalist who, unsatisfied with the photographs published with his stories, started taking his own.
Roye will be participating in a week-long residency at Green Mountain College, which will include class participation with students, a public lecture and a public reception on Friday, February 7, from 5 to 7 p.m. , to coincide with an exhibit of his work at the William Feick Arts Center titled ‘Telling Stories,’ on view through February 14.
Roye is praised for the rawness of his images. His popularity on the social media photo-sharing site, Instagram, skyrocketed after he posted images of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, and he now has more than 46,000 followers.
A self-proclaimed “Instagram Activist,” Roye combines his powerful photographic images with in-depth, descriptive narratives. These reflections are based on engaged and intimate dialogue with his subjects and manage to reveal not just the personal, but the universal; not just a human’s story, but humanity’s story. General gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 1 to 5 p.m. or by appointment. Contact the
