Photographic Legacies of Brasilia and Chandigarh

A new book of photography compares the legacies of two modernist cities: Brasilia and Chandigarh.

The book is the work of architecture photographer Iwan Baan, and it explores life today in two cities that have in some ways withstood and in other ways failed the tests of time.

"'Living with Modernity' reveals another side to Baan's art and his receptive eye for capturing candid shots of people, buildings and open spaces. More like casual snapshots, the images are mostly of quiet moments: boys playing cricket, men napping in parks, pigeons flying above an open plaza. One image shows a boy hanging laundry within one of Le Corb's starkly grey buildings."
