One of the most influential and important photographic artists of the 21st century, Roger Ballen’s photographs span over forty years.  His strange and extreme works confront the viewer and challenge them to come with him on a journey into their own minds as he explores the deeper recesses of his own. Roger Ballen was born in New York in 1950 but for over 30 years he has lived and worked in South Africa. Roger Ballen’s work is in many museum collections, including the Bibliotheque Nationale and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, France, the Tate Modern in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
