‘Amazon Unpacked’ by Ben Roberts


Photographer Ben Roberts‘ new series, ‘Amazon Unpacked’, is both visually stunning and culturally insightful. The Madrid-based photographer went on assignment for the Financial Times Weekend Magazine to the former coal mining town of Rugeley, UK to document the effects of a newly opened Amazon warehouse. Giving insight into the impact of the retail giant, I especially love when journalism and aesthetics collide for great results like these.
