Lucien Hervé. Geometry of Light
Catalogue of the exhibition

Lucien Hervé (1910–2007) was a leading architectural photographer, known above all for his collaboration with Le Corbusier, although he also worked with other famous twentieth-century architects. A constructor of images, Hervé was able to evoke the whole out of a single detail, or convey space through the play of shadow and light. His rigorous sense of composition always hinged on geometry, sometimes to the point of abstraction.

Hervé also displayed a profound social commitment, seeking the presence of the “living” everywhere. This catalogue pays him tribute by sparking a dialogue–as he himself used to do–between the old and the modern, the traditional and the novel, the abstract and the human.
