The organisation of Visa pour l’Image, the International Photo Festival in Perpignan (France), have made a change in the program: The Uganda and Colombia chapters of “Law and Order”, my project about criminal justice systems worldwide, will now be shown during the evening screening of Saturday, September 8, 2012, as part of the 24th edition of the Festival. Screenings are September 3 till 8 and will take place at Campo Santo (starting 9.45pm: September 6 to 8: simultaneous screenings on the Place de la République).
For the work in Colombia, I received a FNAC grant in 2011.
- 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.
