Outland & Asylum of the Birds

Two short movies in one by photographer Roger Ballen. Born in 1950, he now lives in Johannesburg, South Africa since the past 30 years. The group Die Antwoord used his help recording the music video for I Fink You Freeky. Shooting in black and white he manages to capture the grit and filth in the black and white lower classes, living in shanties and temporary shacks far outside the society norm. The places and people viewed here are real. At the beginning of the video you'll see some perhaps familiar faces of two inbred brothers photographed by him and made iconic due tø obvious reasons. By the way, did you know South Africa stands for the highest level of inbred per capita? Now you do
