Seminar

Details

Dutch photographer Iwan Baan is known primarily for images that narrate the life and interactions that occur within architecture. In his presentation and in the exhibition here shown, Iwan Baan highlights Momentum of Light, a series of photo’s that Iwan took in three towns in Burkino Faso, on a trip together with the native architect Francis Kéré.

In great parts of Africa, sunlight plays a key role in vernacular architecture in two ways: using sunlight to create a light source within a building, but also to protect the interior from the intensity of the sun. As a result, such buildings have very few or small openings creating a near pitch-black inside, while the outside is illuminated by direct sunshine.

Iwan will explain how this relation/ contrast and magnitude of the sun in relation to shadows and darkness in the vernacular homes (that are most of the time made out of mud), as well as the dark night, play a key role in his images. Also, he will look into the question of how light and darkness shape traditional building technology and the lives of people in Burkina Faso.
