On the occasion of the centenary of the opening of Carl Petersen’s new building for the Faaborg Museum, Hélène Binet, the architectural photographer, shot a series of stunning photographs of the Museum. Twenty photographs are now being shown as an exhibition in the Museum.

The photographs were taken using an analogue camera with up to an eight minute exposure time. The photographs offer an unique experience of Carl Petersen’s design showing his sensitivity for colour and materiality.

Hélène Binet (b. 1959) is a Swiss-French architectural photographer who lives in London. She studied photography at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Rome and has spent the last 25 years photographing modern and historical architecture.

Amongst other projects, Binet has taken photographs for leading contemporary architects such as Zaha Hadid, Tony Fretton, Daniel Libeskind and Peter Zumthor.

She has photographed historical buildings, including those by Alvar Aalto, Le Corbusier and Andrea Palladio. Hélène Binet, who works with analogue processes, has had solo exhibitions of art- and architectural photography. Binet has received a number of prizes, the latest being an ‘Excellence in Photography’ award from the Julius Shulman Institute, U.S.A.
