World class photographer Jan Banning wanted to portray the homeless men and women in Georgia, Mississippi & South Carolina as a true unfiltered representation of themselves. No clichéd sleeping bags or predictable stereotypes, no overly dramatic black and white filters, just the individual one to one with the camera.
Freedom to allow elements of that person’s life to shine through organically. Banning’s neutral tones and crisp camera work expose their struggles & flaws, but also highlight their strengths and resolve. Sometimes, you have to let a person’s eyes speak for themselves.
In total, 42 individuals were photographed, all of which are included in her book Jan Banning – Down And Out In The South a flawless series created to focus solely on the person, not the label society has given them.
