Limited edition of the only monograph on the work of Hélène Binet, the contemporary photographer of choice for today’s major architects.
Features the work of architects such as Peter Zumthor, Zaha Hadid, Peter Eisenman, Le Corbusier and Alvar Aalto.

This book is an elegant overview of Binet’s career, bringing together black & white and color work. It is divided into thematic sections, each highlighting specific architects and designers as well as a particular aspect of their work that Binet’s dramatic photographs draw out and present. Interludes of more personal work, primarily abstract landscapes, show a different aspect of Binet’s work. Accompanying texts and conversations will highlight the ideas that inform Binet’s work, including abstraction, the importance of materiality and light, the experience of space, and the emotional power of architecture.
