Roger Ballen, Auckland workshop, it's a wrap!


A small but dedicated group of photographers from as far afield as Singapore and Christchurch met this last weekend at my home studio to take part in a workshop with photographer Roger Ballen. Roger talked about the philosophy underpinning his practice and showed work from series made in South Africa since the 1970's.

Roger talked about the increasing importance of video productions to compliment his bookworks. The group viewed videos from the series: OUTLAND, Asylum of the Birds and the super strange I FINK U FREEKY by DIE ANTWOOD which has had nearly 78 million hits on YouTube.

Sydney's College of the Arts will be showing Roger Ballen's Theatre of the Mind which opens next week.
