Allied victory in the Pacific celebrates its sixtieth anniversary in August. Among the celebrants will be a small, largely forgotten group reliving nightmares of captivity. Dutch, English, Australian and American prisoners of war worked among more than a quarter of a million Asians--so called romushas--forced by the Japanese to build railways in Burma and Sumatra. Conditions were desperate: between 50 and 80 per cent of the romushas did not survive, not least because many were torpedoed in transit. The sinking of just the Junyo Maru resulted in the deaths of 4000 Asian workers and 1500 POWs. In Traces of War Jan Banning has interviewed and photographed 24 Dutch and Indonesian survivors. His haunting images show them as they worked, naked from the waist up. Their words elicit, with a matter-of-fact disinterest, the misery of their constant understanding of death. Unsurprisingly, they have hitherto been loath to discuss their ordeals.

About the Author:

Jan Banning was born in Almelo, Holland, in 1954, of Dutch-East-Indies parents. At university he studied social and economic history, and has been a photographer since 1981, concentrating on reportage. A significant theme of his acclaimed work has been the aftermath of war - his highly personalized coverage of, for example, the affects of Agent Orange in Vietnam, the crippling land mines in Cambodia, Arms into Art; in Mozambique, and the tentative and brittle relations between Croat and Serb in Vukovar, have all been internationally recognized. In 2003 he founded the publishing house Ipso Facto, which published his book Sporen van oorlog (Traces of War) in which he portrayed and interviewed 24 old men (among them his father), former forced labourers on the Burma and the Sumatra (Pakanbaroe) railways during the Second World War. The English language version was published by Trolley in 2005. Banning also has a pervasive interest in bureaucracies and how they affect the societies which they dominate. Comprehensively unravelling the strands and structures of these behemoths, he has produced revelatory work in Mozambique, India and Indonesia. He will not stop there.
