On April 8, 2014, I photographed in the office of the Partito della Rifondazione Comunista in Venice (Castello), with my intern Tahne Kleijn, for what I hope to turn into a new project about “The Red Dream”.
- 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.
