Roger Ballen (New York City, 1950) is known for his masterful black-and-white photographs taken over 50 years. Of particular note are the number of influential photo-journalism pictures produced by Ballen from 1982 to 2016. In this era and through others, Ballen's work is remarkable for being wildly inventive and clearly far from concerned by trends of production. His works were featured in solo shows at Akershus Kunstsenter, Lillestrom, Norway (2017); Fototeca, Monterrey, Mexico (2016); Kafka House, Prague, Czech Republic (2015).
