Roger’s photography is mostly documentary. What happens at a political rally? How do people live in Indian villages? What is it like to walk the streets of Hoi An, Lisbon, or Havana?
It’s also a tour of personal moods and emotions, including a lot of self-reflection.
Finally, it is an exploration of color, form, and patterns. And that leads to images that resonate in unexpected ways.
Roger has studied photography at some of the nation’s best photo workshops, like Maine Media Workshops and the Santa Fe Workshop, and he’s learned from people like Karl Grobl, Charles Cramer, Wing Young Huie, and John Sexton. His work has been shown at galleries and informal venues around the Twin Cities.
Photography is a second vocation for Roger. He is a political scientist with professorial duties at Macalester College and the universities of Minnesota, Florida, and Michigan State. He also directed the program evaluation unit at the Minnesota Legislative Auditor’s Office for 20 years.
