About We English

"We English, the title of Roberts' engrossing exhibition of large-scale color photographs (and the related book) might lead you to expect gently satiric social studies in the style of Martin Parr. But the focus of the work is primarily landscape, and several of the images are broad, handsome vistas with only a few people scattered about the terrain. Even the photographs that include larger groups were taken from a distance - a perspective that echoes classical painting, although the subjects are decidedly contemporary." Vince Aletti The New Yorker, October 2009
