Dan Bannino

Italy

Dan Bannino is an Italian-born photographer whose work has been aptly described as ‘Pop-Baroque’ or ‘Pop-Renaissance’. He combines influences coming from the Old Masters and the rich cultural inheritance of his native Italy with inspiration drawn from the world of contemporary pop culture displayed on the internet or TV.

Dan began his Still Diets back in 2014 where he feeds people’s desires to know the secrets behind celebrity diets. Dan researches those elements as symbols of vanity inspired by Dutch artists from the Golden Age particularly from the works of Adriaen Coorte, Adriaen van Utrecht, Francesco Fieravino, Abraham van Beyeren, Adam Bernaert and Aelbert Jansz van der Schoor among others. The decorative abundance is today, as was in those days, allusive to the theme of vanitas. The result is a mash-up of old and new, baroque and modern, filled with innuendos. The element of discovery sure plays a large part of deciphering Dan’s works!
