Clean Shot: A Great Architectural Photographer

I am always interested in unexpected and beautiful images, which is why I’m drawn to the work of the terrific Dutch architectural photographer Iwan Baan. He travels the world photographing architecture in a way that shows not only the unique beauty of each building or structure but also how people use and enjoy it. Here are some of his remarkable images.
