Down and Out in the South' is een portretserie van dakloze mannen en vrouwen die Jan Banning in 2010 en 2011 tegenkwam in South Carolina, Georgia en Mississippi. Het project startte in september 2010, toen het 701 Center for Contemporary Art (CCA) in Columbia, South Carolina, hem uitnodigde om een artist-in-residence te worden. Een bestuurslid van het CCA stelde dakloosheid voor als mogelijk onderwerp voor Jan om tijdens deze residentie via fotografie te verkennen. Aanvankelijk was hij sceptisch omdat de verschoppelingen van de maatschappij al te dikwijls gefotografeerd zijn. Wat kon hij toevoegen of bijdragen aan bestaande beelden? Na een tijdje na te hebben nagedacht over het project, kwam hij echter met een andere aanpak: om daklozen te fotograferen als ieder ander lid van de samenleving. Dit betekende dat Jan niet op zoek zou gaan naar de meest fotogenieke mensen, met hun kenmerkende baarden en hoeden, en de typische parafernalia, zoals winkelwagentjes en slaapzakken, zou weglaten. Deze aanpak hield ook in dat ze niet in dramatisch zwart-wit werden gefotografeerd, een beeldtaal die zo vaak wordt geassocieerd met portretten van daklozen. In plaats van ze te presenteren als 'De Ander', en dus standaard anders dan wij, wilde hij ze fotograferen in een studiosetting, tegen een neutrale achtergrond, met de nadruk op hun individualiteit in plaats van op stereotypen. In essentie wil hij laten zien wie ze zijn in plaats van hoe ze door anderen worden gelabeld.

Hij richtte geïmproviseerde studio's op in kantoren en in de kamers van organisaties die werken met daklozen in Columbia, SC, Atlanta, GA. en in de Mississippi Delta. Werken in drie verschillende omgevingen, een middelgrote stad, de zuidelijke metropool en enkele plattelandssteden, in drie zuidelijke staten was bedoeld om een breed spectrum aan daklozen in het zuiden van de Verenigde Staten te bieden. In totaal fotografeerde Jan ongeveer 100 dakloze mannen en vrouwen.
