OUTLAND, by Roger Ballen - 2001 [1st Ed]

Product Description


by Roger Ballen

Roger Ballen (born 1950 in New York City)relocated to South Africa where his photography work has caught the eye of many. This book was originally published concurrent with an international traveling exhibition. The photos are of rural white people living outside of Johannesburg. "while Ballen's work is often described as 'dark,' he ... speaks of the images referring to humanity's "shadow side". He say: "Shadow is better than dark, because dark for a lot of people connotates evil, and I always say it’s just the opposite. [...] The pictures shouldn’t be seen as dark, and I’m not quite clear what is ‘dark’, anyway.'"120 pages. 10.25 x 10.25 inches.
