Photographer Roy Lewis began his professional career in 1964 when Jet magazine published his photo of Thelonius Monk. Mr. Lewis was with Jet and Ebony before leaving Chicago for Washington in the 1970s to work for the Afro-American Newspapers, the Washington Informer, and as a freelance photographer.
Roy Lewis has captured images of the African-American experience for a half century, across the country and beyond. In 1974, when Muhammad Ali fought George Foreman in Zaire, Roy Lewis was there with a camera. No wonder his current exhibit at Gallery 110 is called “Everywhere with Roy Lewis.”
