Roger Ballen’s beautiful and disturbing new photobook, Boarding House, has just been published by Phaidon. Ballen spoke with me about the new work while he was in Paris last month. You can listen to a 6-minute excerpt of our recorded conversation, and see 9 new images from the book, here in Lens Culture.
Ballen is also giving a week-long intensive workshop in Norway later this summer, limited to 10-13 serious photographers. Complete details here. I wonder how that mysterious northern light might affect his creative energies so far from his home in South Africa…
