Just Because I Love Photography

  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.

 Those who are not familiar with Roger always think his works are full of horror, uncomfortableness and tension. However, we can deeply feel the truth and brutal honesty from his extreme photos. The distinctive contrast of black and white can easily highlight the strong sense and artistic beauty.

Roger Ballen has said: “ my best photo, is well above my head.” Anything that people say doesn't mean a thing to him. Just because he loves photography.
