A VIDEO BY ROGER BALLEN I FINK U FREEKY by DIE ANTWOORD
Many of you may remember Roger Ballen here from his Boarding House essay, also published in Burn 01. Roger was also kind enough to interact with this audience. This is a very interesting example of a conceptual still photographer making a video. This video took 5 days of shooting, but was “years in conceptualizing”, says Roger.
“We had really clear concepts of what we wanted to do in our heads. We started with my photographs for ideas, and then mimicked them in the sets.” says Roger.
I have watched this a dozen times now, and see some new piece each time. Cannot get it out of my head.
