American photographer Richard S. Roberts was a popular name in photography in 1920’s and 1930’s South Carolina, but somehow his posthumous legacy was virtually unknown until recent discovery.
The South Carolina-based self-taught photographer had a grandiose reputation for portraiture, having a gift to imitate reality in an almost perfect fashion and likeness despite having limited materials and a small studio. Through his portraiture, he documented every aspect of the lives of the African-American community in South Carolina, an unknown visual history only to be unraveled now.
