From October 26, 2013 till January 4, 2014, Down and Out in the South will be shown in the Hagedorn Foundation Gallery in Atlanta, GA.
Meanwhile, there have been US publications online that tended to invite quite some comments. To mention just a few recent ones: Slate (by David Rosenberg, up to July 11 some 150 comments) and PetaPixel (by Michael Zhang, 25 comments); earlier,around the time of the exhibition in public space in Atlanta, GA: CNN (Cody McCloy, 52 comments).
A nice article also appeared in the Free Times (Columbia, SC).
Given the fact that I hoped the work would lead to discussion about the subject of homelessness, there seems to be reason for some satisfaction.
- 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.
