Photographer Ward Roberts has developed an interesting concentration of work in capturing pictures of sports courts seemingly coated in soft, pastel colors. Ward’s desire to document these courts is rooted in his childhood growing up in Hong Kong where he saw unity in cultural differences among the plethora of kids from different backgrounds. The pastel colors blur the oftentimes “hard” or “street” feeling of ball courts and give them quite the aesthetic. Although almost everyone who follows art blogs across the internet or has a tumblr has probably ran into or skimmed over his pastel courts, his other photography is relatively unknown to most. One of his other series, billions, holds an entrancing beauty that makes the viewer feel inexplicably small the longer he or she falls into the image, like a moth drawn to the stars. The pieces are created by superimposing downtown lights onto photos of Hong Kong’s wealthy soho district. Enjoy the artwork below!
