I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino

Horace Roye (born Horace Roye-Narbeth, March 4, 1906 – June 11, 2002) was a British photographer.

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.
