Composing Space. The Photographs of Helene Binet. With an afterward by Mark Pimlott. London and New York: Phaidon Press, 2012. 4to., hardcover with slip case, pp. 223, richly illustrated (some plates in colour). Limited edition 0873/1800. Signed by photographer. A near fine copy with minimal shelfwear. This is the first major monograph of Helene Binet, one of the most famous architectural photographers working today. Binet was born in 1959 in Switzerland. After studying photography at the Instituto Europeo de Design in Rome, she worked for two years as a photographer at the Grand Theatre de Geneve before coming to architectural photographs. She has worked with David Chipperfield, Tony Fretton, Zaha Hadid, Peter Zumthor, Sauerbruch Hutton, Coop Himmelb(l)au, and many others, photographing some of the world’s most spectacular, influential, and powerful buildings. A master at capturing what Le Corbusier called the ‘masterful, correct, and magnificent play of volumes brought together in light’, Binet takes pictures that give the viewer a unique and compelling experience of space.
