‘The Gathering Clouds’ at the Third Floor Galley – Opens this Friday!
Sean O’Hagan writes in the Guardian:
‘Ben Roberts is the documentary photographer as flaneur. From 2007 to 2009, he wandered the urban fringes of Spain recording the evidence of the country’s unsustainable building boom and its subsequent implosion. His highly formal landscapes of abandoned housing projects and empty suburban hinterlands possess a suitably unreal undertow. His exhibition, the Gathering Clouds is at the Third Floor Gallery, Cardiff from 18 June to 24 July.‘
If you are able to, please come to the launch party this Friday evening at 7pm. It’s sponsored by the Otley Brewery so there should be some enjoyable refreshments. If you can’t come to the launch party, do pop in to the gallery if you get the chance. Joni, Maciej and Bartok run the space on a tight budget and heaps of enthusiasm and energy, and they deserve the support of the UK’s photographic community.
