Iwan Baan: Going Up – NOWNESS

Curator Elias Redstone on the feted architectural photographer.

“Taking [in a city from great] distances brings you closer to understanding a place,” explains photographer Iwan Baan in a recent video titled “Going Up” on NOWNESS.

It’s impossible to talk about architectural photography today without mentioning Iwan Baan. Although he only started working with architecture in 2005, Baan quickly established himself through his images of the Rem Koolhaas-designed CCTV Headquarters in Beijing, and today is the go-to photographer for the world’s leading master builders.
