Craig, only twenty-two, is a bit of a master of taking the classic ‘I could take that’ picture. His images aren’t always necessarily good but they always seem right. He’s able to capture a moment that seems legitimate to his surroundings while also avoiding any sense of the image being forced. He’s the one guy you could compare to Nan Goldin without it being an insult.
Roberts is a very different type of photographer. His work requires extensive repeated viewings. Within his latest series, “We English,” a mixture of voyeurism and detachment is felt within the images that drives the series along. Through viewing the series, the viewer is simply gaining a small amount of knowledge of the ‘English’ but ultimately has their gratitude through the voyeuristic quality behind the images. He is able to get across so much with only having to show the viewer a very small amount.
