Featured on the Designerati website

  • By Jonathan Banks

My photography currently features on the Designerati website, the digital home and website for “Designer Magazine”.

The article is part of a new series featuring designers and architects speaking about future-proof design. The photographs are from a recent assignment for Tetris DB of the new Wise offices in the Tea Building in Shoreditch, London. Great interior design understands the end user’s requirements, respects the interior space, and produces an environment which is reflective of the brand. The offices have been designed as a flexible working environment with collaborative spaces that utilise a multitude of different options of furniture to enhance creativity.

The article looks at how furniture should not be an afterthought and that we should recognise its vital role as a key driver of a holistic sustainability approach that can extend and enhance the lifecycle of workplaces.

“Portraits of Resilience” – before the event

  • By Jonathan Banks

Yesterday evening was the reception and artist talk for “Portraits of Resilience”, an exhibition organised by The Phillips Collection, @THEARC in Washington DC f featuring photographs of torture survivors by myself in collaboration with Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition (TASSC International) which now runs until July 29 2022.

​Thanks to Nehemiah Dixon and the team at the Phillips Collection for the amazing reception and artist talk that they organised. A recording of the event will be available on YouTube shortly and I will update you with links to this as soon as possible. 

Thanks to Ryan Welch and Nando’s for generously supplying an incredible spread of food for the event. Everyone truly appreciated the contribution and loved the food. It is great to be able to bring together a socially responsible company like Nando’s and a charity such as TASSC International - especially when it involves ‘breaking bread’ over great food!

Thanks to TASSC International for all your amazing work and support that you give to survivors. Everyone on the team is so valuable and has been invaluable to our collaboration. 

Thanks to the survivors that attended in person and online. You are the purpose for these photographs, and I only hope that my portraits do your stories justice.
