Roger Ballen was born in New York City in 1950 and has lived in Johannesburg South Africa for almost thirty years. Trained as a geologist, Ballen first went to Africa as a promising young researcher who prospected mineral deposits. He soon found his photography becoming an increasingly important part of his life as he developed a photo-documentary style evocative of August Sanders, Walker Evans and Diane Arbus.
