Bureaucratics in Rotterdam

Bureaucratics - Jan Banning

Saw a very good photography exhibit in Rotterdam this past weekend, at the Kunsthal. The show’s titled “Bureaucratics” and it features square shots of various civil servants at their desks in offices around the world – I remember shots from Bolivia, China, Texas, India, several African countries, Russia, and more. The photos are by Jan Banning, who in fact lives here in Utrecht. There’s a taste above, and you can see more on his web site (click on Photo Series / Bureaucratics to see lots of them). The shots from India are remarkable for the stacks and stacks of paperwork all around, whereas the African offices are nearly empty.
