Publisher's Description

Unleashed brings together two very different artists: Johannesburg-based photographer Roger Ballen (born 1950) and Dutch draftsman Hans Lemmen (born 1959). Their collaboration reveals a universe of surreal truths born out of a dialogue between their respective mediums of photography and drawing.

Two artists, two techniques—a highly unusual collaborative project. Unleashed brings together two very different artists: the photographer Roger Ballen, who lives in South Africa, and the Dutch draughtsman Hans Lemmen. Both share an interest in the conditio humana and in archetypal images that describe a world beyond our familiar civilisation. Unleashed shows a universe of enigmatic dreams and surreal truths, a world apparently out of time, populated by people and animals subject to forces let loose. Over a period of several months they exchanged images and turned each other’s respective medium into their own material. With camera, scissors, and drawing tools—separated by time and space—they carried on an intensive and challenging dialogue.
