Roger Ballen Photography
I have been shooting black and white film for nearly fifty years now. I believe I am part of the last generation that will grow up with this media. Black and White is a very minimalist art form and unlike color photographs does not pretend to mimic the world in a manner similar to the way the human eye might perceive. Black and White is essentially an abstract way to interpret and transform what one might refer to as reality. My purpose in taking photographs over the past forty years has ultimately been about defining myself. It has been fundamentally a psychological and existential journey.

The Playground ‹ Felicia Simion Photography Confronting the end of childhood as I know it, followed by the beginning of my so-called “adulthood”, has been much easier with my 5-year-old cousin, Felix, around. He is growing up in a small village in Romania, which many generations from my family have called home throughout their lives. Felix is developing himself in a traditional spirit, playing in the sand instead of using a tablet, being happy just by swimming in a small supermarket pool, riding the bike and gazing at the Milky Way, undisrupted by car lights and drunk lamps. At 19-years-old I discovered that there is a way back from gradually becoming an adult and losing our raw, unaltered spirit. I decided to join Felix in his games, where I would be the photographer, the story-teller, and he would act like various characters – a blonde little girl, a dog between dogs, a self-proclaimed cowboy – free from any kind of constraints. Project exhibited during the La Quatrieme Image festival in Paris, November 2014.
