Clayton Roll | Artist Profile


The Neighborhood, 2013.

Today’s Featured Photo Contestant is Clayton Roll. Clayton is currently enrolled at Webster University in Webster Groves, Missouri, where he plans to pursue a double major in Photography and Communications. Clayton currently has four photographs submitted to our contest, including The Neighborhood, shown above.

Photography is more than a hobby for Clayton, it is an artistic calling he hopes to develop into a career. Inspired during travels to Europe, Clayton began photographing to encourage others to enjoy adventurous pursuits. Since then, Clayton has studied the black and white film process and honing his skills using his favorite 35mm film. In the future, he plans to delve more into digital photography in hopes to expand his commercial photography skills. He is currently working on a photography project to document the growth and development of his newest family member, an adopted baby brother.

Clayton Roll on The Neighborhood:

The Neighborhood is still to this day one of my favorite pieces that I have photographed. It originally started out as a project for my photo 1 class. My professor Bill Barrett, told us to photograph our interpretation of a neighborhood, not necessarily our own. My hometown is known for its peace and quiet, but every town has its group of rebels (whether or not the community would like to speak of it) and that is what I wanted to capture. I wanted people to really think about rebellion. It seems to me that the only way to get someone’s attention and possibly start something new, even if it is wrong, is to be rebellious. I do try to strike an emotional chord; I want people to put their own emotions into my work. I want them to not only see it, but feel it. I feel that this piece can be anything that you want it to be, social, cultural, or political. If I do well with my photography, I would absolutely love to be a photojournalist; James Nachtwey is my “inspirational” photographer. Although I think he takes his job to a completely different level than I ever expect to, his work is absolutely beautiful. He captures a message and an emotion in every photograph. That is what I hope to do with my photography.
