Hélène Binet

By Marco Iuliano and Martino Stierli

Over a period of 40 years, Hélène Binet has photographed contemporary and historical architecture. This is the complete monograph of her work, with two extensive critical essays. Marco Iuliano details Hélène Binet’s background, from her childhood in the Italian fishing village of Sperlonga and in Rome, through her early ‘discovery’ of architectural photographer Lucien Hervé, to other influences, like the collaborations with Daniel Libeskind and John Hejduk and connections made at the Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA), London. Martino Stierli sets Binet’s work within a conceptual framework, discussing whether an architectural photograph is an inventory of a building or space, a translation into a two-dimensional image or, rather, an image in its own right.
