The World According to Roger Ballen | Exclusive extracts
In this David Krut Bookstore episode of the David krut Podcast, Annabel WIlliams introduces a new publication on Roger Ballen published by Thames & Hudson titled ‘The World According to Roger Ballen.” Here, we have extracted audio clips provided by Roger Ballen from various interviews and video clips relating to his publications.
In light of the National Shutdown taking place in South Africa, the Johannesburg book launch for ‘The World According to Roger Ballen’ published by Thames & Hudson was cancelled. The David Krut Bookstore, Jonathan Ball Publishers and the Rabbi Cyril Harris Community Centre were to host this anticipated event along with Roger Ballen to promote this new title.
We are still pleased to be able to promote and stock several titles by the photographer which are available to order on our website.
The first audio clip is taken from a promotional video for Ballenesque – Roger Ballen: A Retrospective. This is a 2017 Thames and Hudson publication that portrays the world of the photographer. Here, Roger reveals important elements that predominate his aesthetic. This publication is a personal account of Roger Ballen’s career, including rare and privileged insights into Ballen’s photographic practice and contains iconic and unpublished imagery.
