An affordable introduction to one of today's foremost chroniclers of architecture

Over the past 30 years, the French Swiss architectural photographer Hélène Binet (born 1959) has traveled the world to photograph historic and contemporary buildings, as well as projects in the making, to create some of the most exquisite architectural photography of our time. Considered by many the premier “architect’s photographer,” Binet has worked closely with Zaha Hadid, Daniel Libeskind and Peter Zumthor among others, who have turned to her to interpret their work. Using only analogue techniques, Binet’s photographs are both a representation and a discovery of her subjects, all of them buildings that break the mold, pushing daringly at the boundaries of their time.

In this concise and affordable selection of some 90 of her photographs—ranging from the Baroque London churches of Nicholas Hawksmoor and the Jantar Mantar Observatory in Jaipur to more recent works by Le Corbusier, Peter Zumthor, John Hejduk, Daniel Libeskind and Zaha Hadid—Binet’s work is revealed in all its subtlety and quiet sensitivity.
