Please join me this Saturday for “Before there was Ballen” and a light brunch at Quality Pictures Contemporary Art. In conjunction with the closing of Roger Ballen: Photographs, I will talk about the artist’s work and show that, although Ballen’s photographs look like nothing else being exhibited today, they spring from a myriad of traditions that can be traced back to the dawn of photography.

  1. Scary twins!

  2. Thanks for posting this. I have been teaching a class on Shelby Lee Adams’ True Meaning of Pictures documentary for several years now, and I just got in contact with him for the first time recently. I was getting very excited to attend this discussion and then saw that this is from last year! What an interesting topic…would have loved to have been there. I now want to know more about Ballen.
