Ward Roberts – Landscapes About Us
“Landscapes About Us series is a distilling exploration of loneliness and isolation. Robert’s cast his lens to both natural and urban environments in search of locations of melancholic stillness. Rich in all life but human, a sense of desertion & desolation resonates across these landscapes.
Arresting silence fills each frame. The landscape is a character; a flesh-less substitute for a lonely human soul who has endured trying times and relationships, but rests now in solitude. Robert’s employs tight formal compositions, but pure minimalism is frequently disrupted by a single object of significance which punctuates the vacant landscape.”
