While in Baku, I managed to photograph one of the most impressive buildings I’ve seen in a long time, the Heydar Aliyev Center. Designed by famous architect Zaha Hadid, the building is a beautiful collection of flowing curves, taking you by surprise from everywhere you look at it.
It was placed at the top of a hill overlooking parts of the city and it has a lot of empty space around it which really allows you to appreciate it in its full glory. Unfortunately, we were not able to get it as it was closed, but from the pictures I’ve seen it seems the interior is every bit as interesting as the exterior. As you can imagine, I have quite a few images from there which I will be posting over the next few weeks.
On another note, tomorrow night it’s finally time for my Madagascar photography workshop / adventure and after an initial scare about the flights through the Nairobi airport (which almost completely burned down) it seems we are good to go. I will do my best to blog some shots from there, but if you want to keep up with our adventures you can always follow me on Instagram.
