Ward Roberts' Pastel Courts


With a color scheme more readily associated with the Art Deco stretches of Miami’s South Beach, photographer and conceptual artist Ward Roberts captures courts and fields in all their pastel-painted glory in his aptly named series, Courts. In pinks, blues, purples, and greens, each space eschews the bright and bold shades sports are most often associated with and turns the formula on its head.

Taken over the course of four years, the Australian-born, New York-based photographer captured fields and courts around the world, though some of the best shots come from Hong Kong, which--as a city--seems to favor pastels more than others. Devoid of moving bodies or any real action, the scenes present themselves as barren works of art to be assessed in a whole new way.

Think less LeBron James, more Easter Bunny.
