We_english_12 1000 WORDS PHOTOGRAPHY — Book Review  
by
Simon Roberts at KLOMPCHING GALLERY September 10th, 2009 - October 24th, 2009
Posted 10/8/09

1000 WORDS PHOTOGRAPHY, Issue 06, Fall 2009 Book Review of We English "...You can see in his work, thematic similarities to Tony Ray-Jones, John Davies and Martin Parr, although it is not, of course, ironic or cynical. Still, it isn’t social critique he is after. His work is unashamedly beautiful, more subtle in its discovery and representation of forms of cultural character and identity which actually, upon closer inspection, reveals a much great richness of detail and meaning. With a Simon Rob... [more]

CREATIVE REVIEW, October 2009 Book Review of We English Landscape as Portrait "In his book, We English, photographer Simon Roberts looks at contemporary English leisure in all its collective glory. Like a well-planned domestic family holiday, photographer Simon Roebrts' journey around England for his latest book was a mission in itself. He took his Talbot Express Swift Capri motorhome (plus family) and a hefty 5 x 4 large-format camera on a quest to capture the English at leisure. We English,... [more]

Posted 10/8/09

NEW YORK MAGAZINE, October 5, 2009 Simon Roberts — EDITOR'S PICK "A gorgeous series of lyrical, light-strewn photographs that the artist took of the English at play—bathers in a chilly-looking Gloucestershire, a couple miniaturized amid misty hills in East Sussex—on a tour of his homeland; through 10/24".

THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY REVIEW, October 4, 2009 Arts & Books Reviews “Combining a Martin Parr-esque British wit with wide, open skies and an almost visible damp chill that are reminiscent of Mike McCartney’s Liverpool photographs, ‘We English’ is the result of a year-long odyssey through England in, fittingly, a motor home. Picturing ordinary people doing curious things, Roberts looks for ‘beauty in the mundane’.” [more]

BBC NEWS, October 1, 2009 The English at Leisure — Phil Coomes "...I think Simon has achieved all he set out to, and much more. The pictures are in themselves undeniably beautiful, but their real power comes from the collection as a whole. To remove from the stream of time a series of moments that are instantly recognisable as being part of life in England is a real achievement, and one that will ensure this collection will become the defining study of life in England at the end of this decade."—PH...

THE INDEPENDENT, October 1, 2009 This is England: A new book of photos captures the essence of the English outdoors — Hannah Duguid "...I am part of a lineage of other photographers, such as Martin Parr, Tony Ray-Jones and Bill Brandt, who have captured the social, political and cultural landscape of Britain and England. But there has been very little done in the past decade. My gist is quite optimistic. I am not being critical."—Simon Roberts   [more]

PHOTO DISTRICT NEWS, September 25, 2009 Simon Roberts, We English — Photo of the Day "In 2005, I spent a year traveling across Russia to produce Motherland, a book exploring the Russians’ attachment to their homeland. This attachment to place was somewhat mysterious–simultaneously profound and banal–and it led me to think about my own sense of belonging and memory, identity and place. We English became another journey, not quite as epic as that across Russia, but involving a 1993 Talbot Expres... [more]

Posted 10/8/09

DESIGN WEEK, 17 September, 2009 We Happy Few “We English looks at the country with a lyrical pastoral gaze rather than irony or sarcasm ... Roberts shows people engaged in group leisure activities presented small in the frame and with light that is unfashionably undramatic. It’s a body of work that is unfashionable not only stylistically and in subject matter too. To take the photographs, Roberts covered his head with a dark cloth to peer through the concertina of a large-format view camera, es... [more]

GO SEE — Issue 38, September 2009 Simon Roberts: We English From Personal Identity to the Beauty of Banality “Several of Simon Roberts’ shots of his country and her inhabitants, call to mind Massimo Vitali’s swarming beach images, yet Simon’s gatherings of people are different – somehow more English. The spaces come across as less tidy. Other motifs reminds us of Martin Parr’s soft touch, just more sublime and somehow more honest.” [more]

THE GUARDIAN, August 22, 2009 The English at Leisure "In search of a sense of place and belonging, Simon Roberts set off with his family to photograph England at play. The results are a beautiful, lyrical body of work." [more]

Untitled-ii From Above  
by
Merrill Steiger at Allen Projects January 7th, 2009 - February 7th, 2009
Posted 1/26/09

"From Above"- a solo exhibition showcasing the work of Merrill Steiger at Allen Gallery in Chelsea, comes highly recommended. Anyone mildly interested in Aerials, vibrant colors or abstract forms would be enamored by Steiger's vast, sprawling canvasses, which are intricate and bursting with a wide spectrum of color. These abstract renderings depict overhead, bird's eye perspectives of several different subjects: from verdant marshes to water parks, from oil refineries to vast lakes. The painti... [more]
