Architectural Photography: Composing Space

Over a period of twenty-five years Hélène Binet has photographed both contemporary and historical architecture. Her list of clients include architects Raoul Bunschoten, Caruso St John, Zaha Hadid, Daniel Libeskind, Studio Mumbai, Peter Zumthor and many others. While following the work of contemporary architects – often from construction through completion – Hélène Binet has also photographed the works of past architects as Alvar Aalto, Geoffrey Bawa, Le Corbusier, Sverre Fehn, John Hejduk, Sigurd Lewerentz, Andrea Palladio and Dimitris Pikionis. More recently, Hélène Binet has started to direct her attention to landscape photography, wherein she transposes key concerns of her architectural photography. Hélène Binet’s work has been published in a wide range of books, and is shown in both national and international exhibitions.

Daniel Libeskind says Hélène Binet has emerged as one of the leading architectural photographers in the world. “Every time Hélène Binet takes a photograph, she exposes architecture’s achievements, strength, pathos and fragility.” This lecture offers an overview of Helen Binet’s career, bringing together black and white and colour work, divided into thematic sections highlighting specific architects and designers as well as a particular aspect of their work that Binet’s dramatic photographs draw out and present.SHOW LESS
