Preview: Courts 02 by Ward Roberts

2:16 PM PDT on July 26, 2016

Ward Roberts will host a Los Angeles book launch event for Courts 02 this Thursday, July 28 from 5-7pm at Arcana in Culver City. Roberts will be signing books, and three limited edition prints will be available for purchase as well.

Courts 02 follows the 2012 release of Courts 01 and extends upon Ward Roberts's photographs that document sport courts in Hong Kong, Bermuda, Hawaii, New York and Melbourne.

‘As all iconic images inevitably do, Ward Roberts’s Courts have now become a force of their own, circulating the world with terrific velocity via the rushing slipstream of the Internet, gathering momentum and making their mark upon the global eye. His work has brought together a growing community of followers, with whom he feels a humble sense of connection. This is, in a sense, the most beautiful reflection of the essence of what makes his images so riveting, his art so powerful: he gives life to the spaces of photography, and photography to the spaces of life’.

— Excerpt from Courts 02 book foreword by Jennifer Kransinki, 2016.
