Roger Ballen

Artist and photographer Roger Ballen was born in New York in 1950, and he has lived in Johannesburg, South Africa, since the 1970s. Roger Ballen’s interest in photography dates to when his mother worked as a photo editor with Magnum Photos in New York, and as a teenager Ballen befriended the likes of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Davidson, and Elliott Erwitt. Working as a geologist, Roger Ballen began to photograph the homes and white residents of rural South Africa before developing his more theatrical and expressive documentary style in the late-1990s. Well known works by Roger Ballen include Twins, Front Door, Hope Town, Bedroom of Railway Worker, Puppy Between Feet, Boarding House and Prowling.
