“As a teenager, I stumbled upon the work of Robert Frank and Diane Arbus in the Harvard Square bookstore and time stood still.
I decided it was the most revolutionary art form I’d ever experienced and I wanted it in my life. Since then I studied photography at UMD with John Gossage and along the way with many other generous mentors and creative souls. I have worked as a photographer for newspapers, magazines and books. I have edited books, magazine and special issues. I’ve judged photo contests and given lectures. Mostly, I’ve just enjoyed a life made richer by photography, a medium that is wonderfully suited to explore and make sense of the world and the issues that surround us.”


Roberts curated the exhibitions; “Uncommon Beauty” for Art Works Projects in Chicago, “Faces of the Child Migrant Crisis” for HumanEYES USA, “Home” for the Osso Bay Biennale at the University of Texas at Corpus Christi and was a co-curator for a Bronx Documentary Center exhibit “ Visual Stories Exploring Global Themes”.
