Hélène Binet (b. 1959, Sorengo) is a Swiss-French architectural photographer based in London, who is also one of the leading architectural photographers in the world. Having studied photography at the Instituto Europeo di Design (Rome), Binet has photographed both contemporary and historical architecture for over 25 years. Her list of clients include 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 – Binet has also photographed the works of past architects, such as Alvar Aalto, Geoffrey Bawa, Le Corbusier, Sverre Fehn, John Hejduk, Sigurd Lewerentz, Andrea Palladio and Dimitris Pikionis. More recently, the artist has been directing her attention to landscape photography, wherein she transposes key concerns of her architectural photography. Her work has been shown in solo exhibitions, including the Museum of Modern Art (New York) and Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburgh).
