Born in Philadelphia, PA, George E. Holroyd III grew up in the United States. In 2012, Holroyd began developing his body of work while living as an expat in western and central Europe. He and his wife, Sarah, returned to the US in 2018 and currently live in Washington, DC.

Holroyd's photography focuses on the ephemeral moments that occupy the space between affiliation and detachment. His work pairs tightly composed figure studies with environmental details that emphasize the interplay of light with objects in his surroundings. Context is revealed when his photographs are viewed together rather than as individual artifacts.
