Photographer Roger Ballen, renowned for his powerful and controversial images of marginalised figures in South Africa, has directed a music video for band Die Antwoord, for new track I Fink U Freeky. The promo features Ballen’s typical aesthetic and is striking stuff…
The video, while not without its disturbing moments, feels a more lighthearted take on Ballen’s photography, as the band and other figures dance around in a bleak basement singing ‘I think you’re freaky, and I like you a lot’.
Ballen is holding his first major UK exhibition of his photography this spring, at Manchester Art Gallery. The show will explore three decades of Ballen’s career, and be on show from March 30 until May 13.
