You could have knocked me over with a feather when I was cruising thru our local most excellent bookstore, Kepler's, and saw 'that' pic lurking out at me from the cover of the unlikely literary magazine, "The Bagel Digest" Well, I thought twice about bringing this up, but then felt like it was good closure to bring the artist behind this weird disturbing work to light. He is Roger Ballen, http://www.rogerballen.com. And this pic is part of his " Platteland: Rural South Africa" photo collection. Probably more than you wanted to know. BTW, you can find the Bagel Digest at www.bageldigest.com. I thumbed thru the issue, but ended up leaving it on the shelf.
