Monroe is an art historian, the senior professor at the Southeast Center for Photographic Studies at Daytona State College in Daytona Beach, and a documentary photographer with a long-time interest in “outsider” and vernacular art. His work has been recognized with grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Fulbright Foundation, and he has been a lecturer for the Florida Humanities Council. His photographs have been published in Cassadaga: The South’s Oldest Spiritualist Community (UPF, 2000), which he coedited; Life in South Beach (1989); and Florida Dreams (1993). Monroe last lectured at the NAA during its Interior and Exterior Realities: The Art of Purvis Young and the Highwaymen exhibit, where he provided a uniquely informed insight into the lives and times of some of Florida’s most well-known and inspiring renegade artists.
