With Roger Ballen on the cover of the magazine this month, we thought we would take a look back at one our favorite collaborations: Asger Carlsen and Roger Ballen. We are big fans of Asger Carlsen who we interviewed in the January 2013 issue of the magazine.

The models that comprise ‘worn out’ seem almost mummified, as if completely consumed by the death and devastation surrounding them."
