Roger Ballen has just uploaded to YouTube his new video work Theatre of the Mind, it's a collaboration with Sydney College of the Arts Students and Alumni and made on the occasion of Roger's show at the College. The work is strange, bizarre, and compelling, a psychological thriller set in a zone between sanity and insanity, dream and reality. It is well worth a look, you can go to it HERE.
My pictures explore the strange anthropology of cities. The unusual and overlooked in the human landscape.
I am asking the viewer to question the idea that photographs as documents are complete representations of subject.
I'm interested in the universality of life and the idea of parallel lives - when one thing is happening here, something else is happening over there. The democracy of non-places fascinates me, in the knowledge that inevitably nothing is as it seems.
I work and live between Auckland and Paris.
