Roger Ballen: You may be a photographer, but are you an artist?

I remember first coming across Roger Ballen's work a number of years ago, and as it equally mesmerized and repulsed me, I recognized the fierce originality of an artist who has fully come into his own vision of the world.  Here he gives some guidance to photographers willing to take that same journey, by asking some important questions.  Thanks to the Cooperative of Photography for creating this inspiring video.
