Roy Stuart[1] is an American photographer and film director[2][3][4] who lives in Paris. His photographs blend glamour photography and contemporary art[3] with an emphasis on female models[4] and BDSM aesthetics. His photography books have been published by Taschen, the first three volumes of which sold 250,000 copies.[2][3] He has directed the movies Julia and The Lost Door.[4]

Life and work[edit]

Stuart lived in New York in the late 1970s and early 1980s,[5] working as an actor (he plays a soldier in the street in The Godfather Part II), musician and in a colour photo lab.[2] He moved to London where he became a photographer.[2]

Philippe Garnier, writing in Libération in 2002 said of Stuart's publications by Taschen, "Roy Stuart is quickly becoming a locomotive for this atypical editor."[n 1][2]
