Devin Conroy-Groves is a professional photographer, who for the last 5 years has been doing freelance work for The Oregonian and other news media, as well as for private commissions and individual projects. His work was featured in a successful major grant application to the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), providing renovations and art instillation for one of Oregon City’s unique features – its outdoor municipal elevator. The NEA subsequently used Mr. Conroy-Groves’ work in a national advertising campaign.
Devin considers himself to be a street photographer, focusing on bringing attention to the dismissed, ignored and forgotten. His unique perspective and understanding brings life, beauty and interest to that which is usually bypassed or considered ugly by the casual passerby. One of his most recent projects is a photographic journey through time that he and a fellow photographer and friend captured of the oldest industrial site in the State of Oregon. He has just published a collaborative project with author and psychic William Becker.
