Riassunto: From 1982 to 1986, Roger Ballen, an American photographer, travelled widely throughout South Africa, visiting its scattered towns and villages. During this time he developed a unique vision towards little-known corners and artifacts, trading stores, old houses and humble people. Textured with time, these photographs reveal the essence of these places.

Roger says he has tried to depict what he believes to be a disappearing South African aesthetic. With each year, the anonymity of the present further transforms the character of these places. 'In many ways I feel as if I have recorded the elements of a dying culture. I photographed these towns in the hope of 'freezing' time and arresting the utter extinction of the South African dorp.'

L'autore: ROGER BALLEN, born in New York City in 1950, has lived and worked in Johannesburg, South Africa, for more than 30 years. He worked as a geologist and mining consultant before making his name as a photographer by documenting the small ?dorps? or towns of rural South Africa and their isolated inhabitants. Since DORPS was first published in 1986, Roger Ballen has produced a number of notable books, including Platteland: Images from Rural South Africa, (1994), Outland (2000), Shadow Chamber (2005), and Boarding House (2009). Ballen regularly shows his work in galleries around the world, and his photographs are included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; the Tate, London and the Iziko National Gallery in Cape Town.
