The seminal work by photographer and artist Roger Ballen, re‐released in an expanded edition with never‐beforeseen images from Ballen''s archive. The culmination of nearly 20 years of work, Outland marked Ballen''s move from documentary photography into the realms of fiction and propelled him into the international spotlight.
