Carlton Roberts began his career as a journalist, editing newspapers before moving into magazines in New York City, then back to Georgia where he picks up his Nikon 5300 for fun.
His publishing credits range from the
Newnan Times-Herald to the New York Times, and he has previously been awarded for excellence in news
photography by the Georgia
“Photography allows us to capture, and study space, and time, decipher our surroundings, and look more deeply into the lives we live.”
He is devoted to documentary photography as his artform.
“No matter how an image is captured on film, with a digital SLR or a cellphone the process is about manipulating, and trapping light. But great documentary photographs the ones that inform, and endure – capture the energy of a moment that will be lost for eternity as soon as it happens unless someone anticipates it, and has a camera.”
His concept of Revival Images began in December 2017 when Carlton proposed a documentary photography project to a luthier, and vinyl record store owner in Newnan, GA. In February 2019, “24 Frames,” a fine arts photography exhibit was displayed in the space in which it was created. It chronicled a year of activity at Vinylyte Records / Brown’s Guitar Mill.
Limited edition fine art prints from “24 Frames” were the first in a series of signed, and numbered collections released in 2019.
All Revival Image prints are museum- quality giclée prints (aka Archival Pigment Prints) produced exclusively on Hahnemühle FineArt Archival Papers by Atlanta-based Digital Arts Studios.
