About the Author

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.

Born in New York City in 1950, Roger Ballen has lived in South Africa for thirty years, and is one of the most famous photographers of his generation. Son of the Editor-in-Chief at Magnum Photo, Ballen was thirteen when photography caught his attention. His work as a geologist took him out into the countryside and led him to take up his camera and explore the hidden world of small South African towns. At first, he explored the empty streets in the glare of the midday sun but, once he had made the step of knocking on people's doors, he discovered a world inside these houses, which was to have a profound effect on his work.


[A] charming homage to the spirit of boyhood around the world.-- "All About Photo"

It is a fascinating reissue, edited and printed well, one that should not be missing in the library of serious collectors. It is a splendid companion volume to similar works, such as Sally Mann's At Twelve, another free-wheeling, though different, study of childhood in our time.--Gerhard Clausing "Photobook Journal"

Full of roaring exuberant fellowship.--Tom Whyman "Elephant"
