Following on his acclaimed series "Outland" and "Shadow Chamber," Johannesburg, South Africa-based artist Roger Ballen presents a series of recent black and white photographs, "Boarding House," published in book form by Phaidon, and now on view at Fahey/Klein Gallery. The work straddles the line between documentary and art, depicting a dreamlike, transitory space full of people, animals and odd objects making for psychologically charged surroundings. Fahey/Klein Gallery, 148 N. La Brea Ave., L.A. Opens Thu. Through Oct. 15. Free. (323) 934-2250. http://www.faheykleingallery.com.
