Title: Le Corbusier Lucien Hervé Contacts
Sbriglio, Quentin Bajac, Béatrice Andrieux, Michel Richard
Le Corbusier Lucien Hervé Contacts recounts the
collaboration between these two groundbreaking Modernists, the
his official photographer.
Le Corbusier Lucien Hervé Contacts presents sixteen
of Le Corbusier's most iconic buildings using
Hervé's edited sheets of contact prints as visual references. The
architect's innovative structures and materials are highlighted by
Hervé's dynamic and expressive perspectives, sharp contrasts of black
and white, and frequent close-ups of structural details and textures.
The viewer's eye, moving across the sheets, gradually discovers forms,
defined spaces, and the play of light and shadow - the cinematic
dimension inherent in Le Corbusier's architecture.
This album of 1200 of Hervé's carefully edited, sequenced and labelled
contact prints is also available in English
