Are You a Photographer or an Artist? Provocative Video Asks the Question

Photographer and videographer Roger Ballen’s work is dark, surreal, and downright creepy. And there are many people out there who would consider it art. But what about your work? Are you a photographer or an artist?

That’s the question Ballen asks in the provocative video below produced by the Cooperative of Photography (COOPH). It’s an intriguing clip in which Ballen offers seven thoughts on photography and art while showcasing his own mind-bending work.

This isn’t the first thought provoking video that COOPH has put out. Just last month we posted this fascinating clip from the group that presented the history of photography in just five minutes.
