Pictorialist Photo

Pictorialist Photography

Roberta Murray provides a unique collection of creative pictorialist photography for stock usage, licensing, corporate and home décor art. Features images of the prairies, country landscapes, birds, wildlife, nature, and flowers with a unique painterly impressionist quality. Images have been licensed for use as book covers, hotel art, album/cd art, posters, and more. Commissioned project inquiries are welcomed.

Following the prinicipals of the Pictorialist photographs of the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, these images offer a fresh, new perspective to common photography. Images of fauna, flora, landscapes, and the society around us are available for licensing. As well, a select group of images is available for home decor and commercial interior art presentation. We have partnered with Gango EditionsGreat Big Canvas, and others to make many of these images available to the public worldwide at affordable pricing.  Any image you see here can be made available for print sales. If you don’t see it listed, simply let us know and we will arrange to make it available for print sales through one of our partners.

Corporate and hospitality interior design and consulting services using my unique pictorialist photographic based artworks is available worldwide from Soho Myriad.

If you are a photo or advertising professional looking for the unique creative imagery for your project, please search our online collection or contact us directly to request assistance. Many additional images may be available, special sizes and higher resolution files are available on request.

Created by Canadian artist, Roberta Murray, who approaches photography much the same as the Pictorialist photographers of the late 19th century to tell a more personal, interpretative story. Based more on the photographers dreams and imagination than reality, a fresh take on photographic imagery results. Roberta combines traditional techniques, historical ideas and contemporary tools, using the camera more as a paintbrush than a mechanical device in creating her images. After studying photography in the late 1980s, Roberta abandoned the medium and spent 14 years working in the fibre arts. It is this work which lead her back to photography using textile theories of colour, texture, and depth to create evocative representations of abstract ideas or moods.

“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”

– Ansel Adams
