Theatre of the Mind | Roger Ballen

Opening Saturday 27 May, 4pm
Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery, Auckland

Born in New York in 1950 and based in South Africa for over 30 years, Roger Ballen is one of the most important photographers of his generation. In his early works, Ballen’s connection to documentary traditions is clear, but his more recent series employ drawings, painting, collage and sculptural techniques.
