About Tony Ray Edwards

Tony Edwards is an Oklahoma City area photographer whose work primarily focuses on the human element within the environment.  Tony is a graduate of Oklahoma State University with a degree in advertising and was self-employed as a commercial photographer from 2004 to 2010 when the changing economy required him to reconsider photography as a business. Although he worked in a commercial photography lab between 2000 and 2004, Tony is largely a self taught photographer.  

In general terms, I typically focus on my immediate surroundings making photographs of the manufactured near-world.  My primary interest since returning to photography has been exploration of the surreal familiar, the overlooked leftovers and the haphazard.
