The second picture which stood out for me from Richard Taylor’s new photoshoot from Baku is also from the Flame Towers – the reception area of the luxury Fairmont Hotel. To me this image is more redolent of the Soviet era: the symmetry of the desks suggesting order and control; the inscrutable, downward gazes of the staff/officials; the modernist art installation. A city that, for all its new-found wealth, hasn’t fully shaken off the shackles of the past.
