ACP Special Exhibition - Jan Banning - Down and Out in the South
Big House Gallery
Featuring work by: Jan Banning

Artists Reception: Thu, Oct 18, 6:30pm - 8:30pm

A Dutch photographer whose scope includes a global look at power, governments, and the effects of war, Jan Banning has recently been photographing in the US to produce a documentary project on the Southeast's homeless population. Utilizing a time-honored portrait style that recalls 17th-century Dutch painting, Banning's portraits reveal the homeless not for what they lack, but for who they are.

A photographer who often investigates typologies for what they say about our sameness and differences, Banning's work, in book form, has explored Bureaucratics (Nazraeli, 2008), Comfort Women/Troostmeisjes (Ipso Facto/Seltmann+Söhne Utrecht/Lüdenscheid, 2010) and 2005's Traces of War: Survivors of the Burma and Sumatra Railways (Trolley Books).

Banning's project Down and Out in the South will also be visible in a series of six video projections during ACP in a public installation at the Digital Arts Entertainment Lab at Georgia State, on the corner of Pryor St. and Edgewood Avenue at the SE corner of Woodruff Park from October 18 - 31.
