Horace Roye-Narberth (1906 – 2002 )

Horace Roye-Narberth  The « Welsh Maid » , 1942  The « Irish Maid » London , 1941, The « Scottish Maid » , 1941,The « English Maid »,1939 ed° G.Routledge & Sons

Horace Roye-Narberth, plus communément connu sous le nom d’artiste Roye, fut l’un des pionniers photographes britanniques du 20e siècle,  célèbre pour ses nus et des photos de starlettes et notamment pour celle ci Tomorrow’s crucifixion , d’un tout autre genre.

A partir de 1938, Roye produit une succession d’études sur le nu féminin.publiées sous forme de petits livrets  comme ceux  qui vous sont présentés aujourd’hui, véritable ôde à la beauté féminine et sa nudité.  The Welsh Maid, The Irish Maid , The Scottish MaidThe English MaidThe Irish Maid, qui ont tous trouvés une  extrême popularité, en particulier pendant la guerre. Ces photographies sont prises en bord de mer où à la campagne, pour chaque livret, les mises en scène sont les mêmes. La plage, sur la mer, dans un près, dans un verger, dans les rochers…

Ces livrets ne sont qu’un tout petit aspect de son large travail, reste à son actif bien plus de publications, et comme il aimait à le dire, Roye a vu passer plus 10.000 femmes nues à travers l’objectif.  Il a également  travaillé pour le cinéma . Il était ami et collaborateur avec Walter Bird  ( Voir l’article Ici) et John Everard ( Voir l’article Ici) , qui tout comme lui sont des grands noms de la photographie de nu des années 1930-1940. avec lesquels il a publié notament Eves without leaves . Ils ont crée en ensemble les editions LTD .

Pour la petite anecdocte,  Il a été poursuivi pour avoir refusé de passer de l’aérographe sur les poils pubiens d’une photo, mais  al a réussi à se défendre en justice et avaoir gain de cause, arguant que la représentation de la beauté ne doit pas être entravée par la pruderie.

Je ne vous présente pas toutes les planches de chaque livret mais une sélection, et je ne vous les présente pas non plus dans l’ordre d’apparition  (Les teintes de tirage varient selon le livret , je n’ai rien changé, même si le dernier tire beaucoup sur le jaune, et un peu trop à mon goût….) . vous pouvez retrouvez ces planches sur des sites d’enchères en tirage noir et blanc)
