The les atkins Photography/Atkins Ad Group rockfish, "Fisheye," is a unique look at Roanoke Rapids’ past. One side of the rockfish features a 1920s couple being photographed on the banks of the Roanoke River. Artist Tina Gregory captures every detail of this couple’s photo session. The 1920s was a pivotal time for photography. Photographs actually started to replace drawings in advertising as people thought the camera wouldn’t lie.
