Picture of Victor Holt


Victor Holt's involvement in photography began after seeing an exhibit by the renowned photographer Roy DeCarava at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, DC. He was moved by the tonal ranges and complex composition based on uncomplicated scenes.

He subscribes to the theory of the famous photographer, Ansel Adams, that "the negative is the score, and the print is the performance." Victor's darkroom work creates images that show his creativity and unique identity.

He has received training in photography through numerous institutions locally and as a member of several photography clubs, and has benefited from the abundant skill level and knowledge within those groups.

He has exhibited his work through group and solo shows abroad, throughout the US and locally.

After a successful career as a Computer Specialist and Database Programmer, Victor Holt is now employed as a Staff Photographer for the Washington Informer Newspaper. He is also available for events.

Victor Holt is a native Washingtonian and currently resides in the Van Ness neighborhood in NW Washington, DC.
