Red Utopia

Red Utopia

Communism 100 years after the Russian Revolution

Jan Banning set off in search of locations in five countries (India, Italy, Nepal, Portugal and Russia) where the ghost of Communism still walks abroad and sometimes even dominates local mind-sets. In cities, towns and villages, he recorded the interiors of Communist Party offices with their often exuberant iconography: red flags and banners, portraits of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin and Mao, and pictures of national party leaders and ideologues. He has also photographed local party activists, staring solemnly into the lens from behind their desks. Banning’s images are distinguished by their careful composition and lighting.

About the photos: “I think it is terrific and even better than Bureaucratics — so diverse.” -Elisabeth Biondi, independent curator and former Visuals Editor of the New Yorker about the Red Utopia photo series.
