Roger Ballen: Boarding House with 'Contemplation'

Regular price £1,300.00 Sale

Limited collector's edition with a silver gelatin.

In Contemplation we witness a clean shirtless man holding a white duck to his face. Sitting in a man-made ditch he appears to be deep in conversation with the duck, listening intently to its story. An electrical cable is pinned neatly to the wall, but it seems not to be coming from, nor leading, anywhere. As always in the boarding house, the only consistency is the dirt and dust of its abandonment.
