"Caught within the redundancy of the ebbs and flows of life, I had lost a sense of who I once was and what was vital for the importance of my existence. I had placed everyone and everything before myself. Instead of drowning myself, and the path I was headed down, I have leapt towards freedom, mirrored within the ocean. The ever-changing light reflections and ocean waters has breathed new life into me. As I stand at the oceans edge, I am renewed by it’s endless possibilities." 

Roberta Ruocco is a contemporary fine art photographer located in New York City. She specializes in large scale photography for residential, commercial, and commissioned works. 


Her parents immigrated to America from the island of Capri. She is first generation born in Palm Beach, Florida and was fortunate enough to spend her summers in Capri. She grew up capturing the two places closest to her heart through her lens, not ever realizing the relevancy. While in college studying international marketing at Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, She took a black and white photography class. Which inspired her more than anything and ignited her passion. She graduated from FIT, got married, had two beautiful children and shortly thereafter went back to study photography at the School of Visual Arts in NYC where she received a BFA in Photography. It was a challenging journey but such a noteworthy experience filled with growth, love and passion.

She loves competing in juried exhibitions and has exhibited throughout the United States. She had solo show in Capri, Italy with Il Centro Caprense Ignazio Cerio. Roberta loves working with art consultants, interior designers, and collectors to find the right image from her series or working with a client on a commission.

Her recent exhibits include 30x30 Feature in The Affordable Art Fair in NYC, Miami Art Basel Events of Red Dot Miami, Spectrum Miami and Acqua Art Miami. 

You can find Roberta capturing moments anywhere between New York, Palm Beach, Capri and any beaches in between!
