Charles J. Roitz – Self-Portrait, c 1974
The Charles J. Roitz Photography Collection was donated by the Roitz family in 2013. Versatile as a photographer, sculpture, and a poet, his art is a deeply spiritual expression of the sacred energies he sees manifest though out creation.
The collection includes 9 boxes of loose prints and 2 published editions. The 9 boxes of prints are labeled 1) Late 1950s – 1960s 2) Early 1960s 3) 1970 4) Towards a Contemporary Consciousness 5) Petroglyphs 6) Panama 7) Peru 8) Snow, Sloan’s Lake 9) Italian Series. The prints in Box # 8 and # 9 are in color. Not all the loose prints in the 9 boxes are digitized and available on line. Un-scanned prints in the boxes are often test prints before a better quality version was made. However, all the loose prints that are unique and/or of good quality are available in the online Regis Library Digitized Collections. See link below.
The collection also contains two published editions: The Way Home, 2005, and, Selected Significant Images, 1996 – 2006.
The loose prints in the 9 boxes, and the prints in the two bound editions have been digitized in the Regis digital collections: The Charles Roitz Photography Collection.
