Roger Ballen: Shadow Chamber

by Roger Ballen (Photographer), Robert Sobieszek
 

Roger Ballen (b.1950) challenges the ways in which we perceive the reality of photography. His striking, ambiguous and often disturbing images of people, animals and objects posed in mysterious, cell-like rooms occupy the grey area between fact and fiction, blurring the boundaries between documentary photography and art forms such as painting, theatre and sculpture

Overview

Roger Ballen (b.1950) challenges the ways in which we perceive the reality of photography. His striking, ambiguous and often disturbing images of people, animals and objects posed in mysterious, cell-like rooms occupy the grey area between fact and fiction, blurring the boundaries between documentary photography and art forms such as painting, theatre and sculpture. Best known for his award-winning photographs of people on the fringes of South African society as depicted in OUTLAND, this geologist turned artist-photographer debuts his most recent body of work in Shadow Chamber. By creating an extraordinary world that is part dream, part nightmare, Ballen has secured his position as a highly collected artist.
