The Edit: Best of Iwan Baan

Why white? Perhaps like a blank canvas, white could serve as a perfect primer for Iwan Baan's photography, making special notice for the surroundings that the structure relates with.  People seem to glow along the white background the building provides, perfectly capturing the moments spent in contact with the building and bringing focus as to how it coincides with the community. The mono-color (or lack thereof) also strips away any sort of distractions that a variety would bring, persuading the eye to focus on the structure. Baan can benefit most from this, as he can pick out the perfect angles for showing off design (even if it means taking pictures from a high flying, open door helicopter). And so here we present the best of white architecture through the frosty lense of Iwan Baan.
