Mel Roberts’ photographic career spans over twenty years and reflects the growing visual freedom of the 1960’s and 1970’s in California. Roberts was one of the most prominent male photographers of the period. This first collection of his work reflects a unique vision with images that capture the subtle details of life from these important decades.
Roberts’ images are of young men on a journey of self discovery, in a time before people were pressured to define themselves as gay, straight, or otherwise. These portraits are a celebration of self expression, hope and the possibilities that are as big as California itself.
