This retrospective exhibition spans over 40 years of image making and leads us through many incarnations of thought and process by one of the most influential and important photographic artists of the 21st century; from his early documentary images of South African mining towns, to the highly stylized, personal and psychologically charged projects that he is working on today. Roger Ballen has exhibited throughout the world, is widely published and is represented in many museum collections such as Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France; Tate Modern, London, UK, Museum Folkswang, Essen, Germany and the Museum of Modern Art, New York...MORE.
