Historical Context:
Photojournalist David Banta favors portrait photography, and aims to place his subjects within their personal environment. His goal with each subject is to create a comfortable atmosphere in front of the camera by spending time with the person long enough to get to know them. Due to this process, his art becomes a collaborative effort between the photographer and the photographed.
