Architizer A+ Relevance Award Winner Iwan Baan
Honored with the Architizer A+ Relevance Award, presented by New Museum director Lisa Phillips, Iwan Baan is among the most talented architectural photographers working today. His art lies not only in capturing the building as an object, or in mastering composition, but also in capturing the urban context and human life both within and beyond his subjects’ walls. He shows architecture as most people see it, transcendent but also in touch with day-to-day life.
