Roger Ballen: Recent Photographs & Interview

The new issue of Lens Culture features a wonderful audio interview with photographer Roger Ballen. He discusses some of the psychological and anthropological issues present in his work, particularly as they relate to his extensive work in South Africa. There is also a gallery of recent images which, in keeping with Ballen's work on the whole, are strange, off-putting and quite visceral. Listen to the interview here.
