In his large-format photographic series Flotsam, Ward Roberts portrays abstracted sunbathers upon New York’s canicular Far Rockaway Beach. With his twin signatures of controlled composition and faded colour palette, the images frame the relentless heat and isolated subjects of a seemingly anonymous beach.
Soon to be available in a new book of the same name, Flotsam’s description reads: “Whitest sands and deepest blue skies fade from harshest light, while aeroplanes soar high above the washed ashore sun-worshippers. Roberts’ altogether surreal juxtapositions of beached castaways set against a waterless panorama of anonymous American suburban horizons, appear almost timeless.”
Flotsam will be previewing at Cosmos Arles Books during the opening week of the festival Rencontres d’Arles on 3-8 July, 2017. For more information, visit www.cosmosarlesbooks.com.
