Description: The follow-up to the critically acclaimed Outland and Shadow Chamber by photographer Roger Ballen born in 1950. Boarding House captures an imaginary space of transient residence, of comings and goings, focusing on the evocative drawings and sculptural objects as well as the people and animals found there. Compelling and thought-provoking, the 75 photographs (many of them previously unpublished) are like images from a waking dream, with layers of rich detail, flashes of dark humour and an altered sense of place. This book includes an introductory essay by photography curator David Travis that addresses this new body of work in an accessible style.
