Podcast Interview with Roger Ballen

Roger Ballen is a legendary fine art photographer who grew up in New York and moved to South Africa many years ago. He has been widely exhibited in museums and galleries all over the world, and this April has an upcoming exhibition at the Fahey/Klein Gallery in Los Angeles. His innovative work has created a new adjective in the Art world: “ Ballenesque”. In this 2nd interview, the very first for the Podcast, I had the opportunity to get inside the thought process of the artist and his worldview, and talk about the new retrospective book “Ballenesque”.
