About US-american photographer, Roe ETHRIDGE (b.1969, in Miami)

Roe ETHRIDGE received his BFA from the Atlanta College of Art in 1995. He moved to New York City two years later and began working as a commercial photographer. In his photographs, he uses the real to suggest—or disrupt—the ideal. Through commercial images of fashion models, products, and advertisements, as well as intimate moments from his own daily life, he reveals the fine line between the generic and the personal, merging art-historical genres such as the still life or portrait with the increasingly pervasive image culture of the present.
