Light Lines: The Architectural Photographs of Helene Binet in the Royal Academy of Arts
In London with all the galleries around we are spoiled for choice. I go to lots of exhibitions, at least once a week. The last one which had that magic touch was Light Lines: The Architectural Photographs of Helene Binet, in the Royal Academy of Arts.
Helene Binet is a Swiss-French artist who grew up in Italy but lives in London. Her photographs do not just show off building features and shapes, but look much deeper. As she says light is the key component of her work and the lines that belong to the architecture. The photographs are full of deep shadows and the geometry of light. There about 90 photographs of Zaha Hadid, Daniel Libeskind and Peter Zumthor's buildings. Helene Binet photographs space or as she says 'frame space'. It is a most amazing experience. I almost felt that I was transformed into that space. I wish you all could see it.
