Hélène Binet is the 2015 recipient of the Julius Shulman Institute Excellence in Photography Award. Shulman established the Julius Shulman Institute at Woodbury University in 1995 with the goal of promoting an appreciation and understanding of the built environment through photography.

For twenty-five years, Binet 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 JSI Managing Director Emily Bills, Hélène Binet: 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 in Cologne, Germany and the photographs on view WUHO Gallery in Los Angeles emphasize Binet’s meticulous use of traditional light-based photographic processes.

Hélène Binet: Fragments of Light has been made possible by the generous support of ammann // gallery, Cologne, Germany.
