Iwan Baan

Dutch photographer Iwan Baan is known primarily for images that narrate the life and interactions that occur within architecture. Born in 1975, he studied at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Baan’s photographs reveal our innate ability to re-appropriate our available objects and materials, in order to find a place we can call our own. As the inaugural recipient of the Julius Shulman award for photography, architects such as Rem Koolhaas, Herzog, de Meuron, Zaha Hadid, Diller Scofidio, Renfro, Toyo Ito, SANAA and Morphosis turn to Baan to give their work a sense of place and narrative within their environments.
