Stunning Photos From An Art Funhouse The Size Of Three Islands

I’ve been to a lot of museums, but I’ve never seen any like this.

On three tiny islands in central Japan, stunning natural beauty lives side by side with some of the world’s best contemporary art and architecture. In the book Insular Insight, photographer Iwan Baan takes us deep into a place where anyone can play with high art. To find out more, read a lyrical meditation on the islands.

Photos by Iwan Baan from Insular Insight: Where Art and Architecture Conspire with Nature, edited by Lars Müller and Akiko Miki. To learn more about Naoshima and Teshima, read a travel essay about visiting the islands. And for more on moving to stand still, read Pico Iyer’s new TED Book, The Art of Stillness.
