Photographer Roger Ballen’s work transcends genre, time and space.

Having recently collaborated with South African rap-rave crew, Die Antwoord, on the music video from their track ‘I Fink U Freeky’, his work has gained critical attention due to its frightening imagery. Ballen fuses people, animals and derelict spaces to generate disturbing images that question humankind’s struggles in a contemporary setting. Ballen’s works have been described as “portraying pluralism, relativism and the mortal struggles of our modern souls.” A selection of the artists work will be on display at Stills Gallery from September 4 through to October 4.
