"Timothy Roberts profiles Atlantic City as it recovers from near bankruptcy to stage another much-anticipated comeback. Steve Hankin, an Atlantic City attorney who Roberts interviewed, commented We've been through so many phases. This is the final one. This is the last hurrah." -  All-About_Photo

"All shot in black and white, Timothy's photographs have a timeless quality. The people Roberts captures are not the high rollers, but regular folk, both residents and visitors, who are there to enjoy Atlantic City's famous beach and boardwalk, rides at the amusement park, fishing off the jetty, among other attractions." - Creative Boom

Photographs by Timothy Roberts 

Atlantic City looms large in the American imagination. Historically the city was a refuge for those fleeing Prohibition. The casinos offered the unsleeping promise of redemption at the pull of a lever or roll of the dice. Timothy Roberts’ photographs profile this iconic American shore resort as it emerges from its latest crisis.

Timothy Roberts is a photographer based in Philadelphia. He spent many years as a newspaper reporter working in the South and the West. Now a documentary photographer, Roberts looks for stories about places in transition or people who are struggling with the changes and chances of life.
