Atmospheric with crisp black-and-white contrasts between natural light and built structure are some of the signature qualities that describe the work of Swiss-French photographer Hélène Binet, who was named as the 2015 Julius Shulman Institute Excellence in Photography Award.
To celebrate Binet's 25-year career, the WUHO Gallery in Los Angeles will host the "Hélène Binet: Fragments of Light" exhibition -- co-curated by Binet and Emily Bills of the Julius Shulman Institute -- starting with the opening reception and award presentation on February 28.
The exhibition will run until March 29, 2015.
Check out some of Binet's photos and other details below.
"For twenty-five years, she has photographed the work of leading contemporary and historical architects, notably Zaha Hadid, Daniel Libeskind, and Peter Zumthor. Her work captures the atmospheric qualities of architecture and emphasizes the interaction between structure and natural light."
Her photographs help us to rediscover fleeting moments of visual access, manifested in tightly cropped details. 'The sense of the light, the sense of coming out of the dark, it’s something that stays very much in the way I photograph,' says Binet.
"Co-curated by Binet and Bills, Fragments of Light presents work that spans her career, including now-iconic photographs of Zumthor’s Therme Vals and Hadid’s Phaeno Science Center. Binet is represented by ammann // gallery and the photographs on view in Los Angeles emphasize Binet’s meticulous use of analogue photographic processes."
