Historical Context:
With a background in photojournalism, David Banta's portrait photography places the individuals within their personal environment. Banta prides himself in spending time with the person long enough to get to know them and create a comfortable position in front of the camera. Within this process his art becomes collaboration between both the photographer and the personality being photographed. Banta is an alumnus of Grand Valley State University, class of 1974.
