Pin It


Roger Ballen/Die Antwoord features photographs from Die Antwoord’s I fink u freeky music video directed by Roger Ballen and Ninja

Also included are photographs from Roger Ballen's Shadow Chamber and Outland series which were an inspiration to the band.

When we first discovered your work a few years ago our minds got totally blown and we have never been the same since. I remember clearly that when me and ninja saw your photographs we decided right there and then to put an end to all the music and art we had been working on up till that point. Immediately we began working on a new project called DIE ANTWOORD.
