The High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA, has bought 18 photos from my portrait series of homeless in the southern US,“Down and Out in the South”, for its permanent collection.
Earlier, the High Museum acquired 25 photos from the series “Bureaucratics.”
A selection from the exhibition will be shown in Atlanta’s Hagedorn Gallery between October 26, 2013, and January 4, 2014. After that, the entire show (23 photos) will be exhibited in 701 CCA in Columbia, SC.
- Jan Banning
May 4th 1954, Almelo
Dutch photographer and artist. Banning was born in the Netherlands from Dutch-East-Indies parents. He studied social and economic history at the Radboud University Nijmegen, and has been working as a photographer since 1981. A central theme of Banning's practice is state power, having produced series about the long-term consequences of war and the world of government bureaucracy.
