Hervé and Corbusier

by Connie Dickson

“In 1949 the photographer Lucien Hervé took photographs of Unité d’Habitation, an innovative apartment building in Marseille. He sent them to the building’s architect, Le Corbusier, who immediately realised that after forty years of searching he had finally found a photographer with an ‘architect’s soul’.”

A beautiful collection of photographs from the late French photographer Lucian Hervé. The text above is lifted from the book, Le Corbusier & Lucien Hervé, The Architect & The Photographer–A Dialogue. View the full collection of photographs here.
