Roger Ballen: A Retrospective on a 21st Century Icon


American photographer Roger Ballen has produced several iconic photographs from his extensive oeuvre; having worked with Magnum Photos and being surrounded by other master photographers such as Edward Steichen, Edward Weston and Andre Kerstesz, Ballen was bound to follow their footsteps.

Now one of the most influential photographers of the 21st century, we witness his ever-growing and developing mastery in the show "Ballen: In Retrospect", to open on Oct. 7 at the Snap! Space in Orlando, and on Oct. 8 at Southeast Museum of Photography in Daytona.
