Roger Ballen is one of the most important photographers of his generation. He was born in New York City in 1950 but has lived and worked in Johannesburg, South Africa, for over thirty years. In his work from 1982 to 1994, Ballen trained his camera on the white population living in the hinterland. He has gained world fame with his penetrating photos recording the daily environment of these people on the margins of South African society.
