Animal Abstraction by Roger Ballen
Black and white photographs
Reflex Editions Amsterdam
Animal Abstraction collects one body of work by photographer Roger Ballen (born 1950). Enigmatic, beautiful and often disturbing, these black-and-white photographs are staged in desolate interiors where humans interact with animals to create mysterious tableaux that reflect Ballen’s fascination with the animal kingdom.
Features photographs from The New York Times Magazine award-winning photography gallery, “The Selma Blair Witch Project: Fall’s Dark Silhouettes Have a Way of Creeping Up on You,” by Roger Ballen.
Animal Abstraction was published in 2011 on the occasion of the exhibition “Roger Ballen – Animal Abstraction” held at Galerie Alex Daniels – Reflex Amsterdam.
