Photo Friday: Roger May

Roger May documents Appalachia, in black and white. 

"My name is Roger May. I am a documentary photographer currently living in Raleigh, North Carolina. I was born and raised in the Tug Valley region of southern West Virginia and eastern Kentucky. I appreciate photography of all types, but I'm drawn to documentary work that reveals the human spirit. I tend to hoard photography books, drink too much coffee, listen to the same songs over and over again, and bore my friends with obscure facts about photography, Appalachia and gadgets. 

I'm currently enrolled in the Certificate Documentary Arts program at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, where I'm also a part time instructor. I'm the husband of a beautiful West Virginia girl. Together, we have four children, a slew of critters, and never a dull moment."
