a) Baan won the first Julius Shulman Award

AP is changing.
What I find remarkable about his work is that the images are very credible and not the artificial look of
so much over processed and over produced architectural work.
His pictures flatter the buildings and rooms, but they LOOK REAL and they look like something you could see if you were there...
or just feel like that.
It's sort of like comparing the photography of Peter Lindbergh for IWC watches to the horrible IMO over detailed, over processed
photos of most watches, cars etc that start to look like illustration, 3D rendering and an exhibition of photoshopping.
Same thing goes when comparing Peter Lindbergh's slightly scruffy fashion photos to the over produced and retouched fake skin
stuff that comes from hyper image quality and "death by photoshop"
What is also interesting is that the over produced and over retouched imagery that loses that touch of photo veritas
has lead to many watch companies and car companies to use 3D rendering rather than photography. This is because so much
photography in the end looks so artificial that it is so far from reality that it maked 3D acceptable.
