Animal Abstraction was published in 2011 on the occasion of the exhibition “Roger Ballen – Animal Abstraction” held at Galerie Alex Daniels – Reflex Amsterdam.

This book is both a departure from his existing oeuvre and the culmination of his unique aesthetic linking image-making and theatrical performance. Separated into seven chapters or “acts,” these Ballenesque images take readers on a journey deep into the subconscious.
