Horace Roye (1906-2002) was a photographer working in England with John Everard and Walter Bird. Roye's photograph Tomorrow's Crucifixion, depicting a nude model wearing a gas mask while pinned to a crucifix caused controversy when published in the North London Recorder in August 1938, but is now a noted photograph of its time. As a photographer of nudes, he successfully contested the obscenity laws of his day. In 2002 at the age of 96, Roye was stabbed to death by an intruder at his home in the kasbah of Rabat, Morocco.
