In 1930, Harold Roth was one of half a million 12-year-olds who received the gift of a Brownie camera from Kodak. He was quickly hooked. When he was 19 he purchased a Graflex camera, which he used to capture classic images of The Bronx, where he grew up, Central Park, Coney Island and the 1939 NY World's Fair…
Harold Roth's place in the history of photography is well secured by his iconic black and white images of New York in the 1930's and 1940's, through which he created a photographic portrait of a younger New York City in all its romantic glory.
Urban Columns I – IV (1983-84)
Urban Columns I-IV are a series of four welded steel sculptures created in the early 1980s that were inspired by both the World Trade Center Twin Towers and the stele/stela of the ancient Mayan civilization in Central America. Each sculpture is constructed as a marker left behind after a great civilization had ceased to exist.

I've painted landscapes all my life and used a variety of formats over the years to study different aspects of nature. My early work was fairly large fields of color derived from locations mostly in the Catskill / Woodstock area where I've lived since the early 1980's but also occasionally from the American west where my wife and I often travel.
My paintings are always oil paint on canvas or museum board. My drawings are in pencil or pen and ink and each one is of a specific quality that dominates the scene I'm looking at when I begin it. I think that most serious artists paint the same painting over and over again for their entire lives. The image may change over time but the impulse that generates it is always the same.
