Hong Kong Reflections

Ward Roberts is a conceptual artist who creates exquisitely composed photographs drawing on themes such as loneliness and isolation in the modern world.

The young artist’s perspective is fresh and engaging, the sophisticated aesthetic prevents his work from being downbeat in spite of the fact that many of his compositions are empty landscapes. Rather, there is an innate energy at the core of his work, one which is harnessed and marshaled into every detail in the composition. Roberts’ work is in many ways a rebuttal of the prevailing trend of urban, gritty style contemporary photography. There is a dichotomy at play in his fine art images which simultaneously recall the mastery of medium and calculated patience of remote academic painters, yet his subjects and presentation feel completely new and contemporary.

Ward Roberts is currently based in New York.
