After reading this great profile in the Wall Street Journal, we thought now would be a great time to round-up the iconic shots of "the Indiana Jones of Architecture Photography", Iwan Baan. From his first commission, documenting the construction of OMA's CCTV Headquarters, to projects such as Herzog & de Meuron's VitraHaus, he has brought us some of the most enduring images in contemporary architecture. But he is also known for certain trademarks: taking time for lesser-known humanitarian projects, such as MASS Design Group's Butaro Doctors' Housing; focusing on human interaction with buildings, as seen in his photographs of the Torre David in Caracas for the Venice Biennale in 2012; and his penchant for helicopter shots - which resulted in the stunning photo of Manhattan in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy (read the story behind the shot here).
