Roger Ballen: Boarding House

15 October - 28 November 2009

Hamiltons announced exclusive UK representation of acclaimed photographer Roger Ballen at the time of his inaugural exhibition, Boarding House, in 2009.


The Boarding House series is a journey of discovery in which we leave our ordinary selves behind and confront a primitive part of the human condition and its psyche. With an element of dark humour, these thought-provoking images blur the margins between the real and imagined, altering sense of place.


"During the process of creating Boarding House I broke through or into parts of my mind that I never knew existed. It was quite enthralling to find and be in this place. It is difficult to explain this place except that I think it exists in some way or another in most people's minds.", Roger Ballen.
