The culmination of a four-year project documenting sporting courts and fields across the globe, Courts, the debut book by Australian photographer Ward Roberts, is filled with colour-drenched images that operate as both playful documentary studies and intriguing formal propositions. Tracing similar thematic ground to Paris-based photographer Giasco Bertoli, whose book Tennis Courts (Nieves, 2009) described abandoned courts amid European woodlands and suburbia, Roberts instead hones his focus to the dense urban landscape, bet Hong Kong's pastel high-rises or London's quaint architectural details. Published by official Perimeter pals, Erm Books (Melbourne). The book is sold out
