Roger Ballen Five Hands

As one of the most influential and important photographic artists of the 21st century, Roger Ballen's photographs span over forty years. His strange and extreme works confront the viewer and challenge them to come with him on a journey into their own minds, as he explores the deeper recesses of his own.
