Photo Essayby Iwan Baan

Diane Arbus once said that a 'camera is a kind of license.' My work as a photographer has granted me a license - to travel, to interact, to witness, document and observe - places and people across the world. Many of you visiting this exhibition may know my work from photographs in magazines, books or newspapers. But there is a lot that you can not see in a photograph. The sound of the resident jazz-band that is as essential as tracks to Chicago's loop metro system. The epic rainstorm that challenges the rammed-earth walls of a centuries-old village in the north of Ghana or the story that a toothless farmer recalls about life how life is changing in rural china. I use Instagram to share the sort of secrets that are happening all around me when I am photographing. You'll see here very little 'architecture' as these are moments that occur between the buildings, between the travels and between the commissions.
