Roger Ballen: Roger the RatRoger Ballen: Roger the Rat

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Nadine Barth. Text by Roger Ballen.

Over the past 35 years, Johannesburg-based American photographer and painter Roger Ballen (born 1950) has developed a distinctively dark and eerie style—characterized by a simple square format and stark black and white—to create images of the South African social landscape and portraits of surreal vignettes.

In his latest volume Ballen expands on his longstanding predilection for unsettling interiors and spooky characters. Roger the Rat follows the life of a creature whose body is human but whose head is that of a rat. Ballen’s rat character interacts with mannequins, people and various objects in often cramped and oppressive rooms, in ways that defy explanation but seem at once humorous and sinister. This book gathers the series, made between 2015 and 2020.

Roger Ballen: Animal AbstractionRoger Ballen: Animal Abstraction

Published by Reflex Editions Amsterdam.
Introduction by Wim Pijbes.

Animal Abstraction collects one body of work by photographer Roger Ballen (born 1950). Enigmatic, beautiful and often disturbing, these black-and-white photographs are staged in desolate interiors where humans interact with animals to create mysterious tableaux that reflect Ballen’s fascination with the animal kingdom.

Roger Ballen: Photographs 1969-2009Roger Ballen: Photographs 1969-2009

Published by Kerber.
Text by Ulrich Pohlmann.

For more than 30 years now, American photographer Roger Ballen (born 1950) has been shooting portraits of the impoverished white population of rural South Africa. Likened to the work of master documentarians Walker Evans and Diane Arbus, Ballen's controversial photographs can be brutal, funny, tender and appalling. His day laborers and transients eek out a seemingly wretched existence in the country's so-called Platteland--a hermetically sealed world rarely captured on film. Ballen shoots exclusively in black and white, and portrays his subjects against the backdrop of their own living spaces, whose spartan interiors he transforms into claustrophobic, almost surrealistic stage sets, creating sculptural tableaux with wire, dilapidated furniture, animals and drawings. Published on the occasion of a retrospective at the Münchner Stadtmuseum, this monograph explores Ballen's extraordinarily expressive brand of photographic mythmaking.
