Photographer, fly on the wall? Me, Jan Banning, while photographing in Uganda’s newest prison, in Nakasangola, built in 2007. Photo (c) Kim Verkade (my intern). And the resulting (unedited!) photo. Once again: fly on the wall?
- 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.
