Le Corbusier and the Power of PhotographyJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 13 Nov 2012
Whether you are consciously familiar with Le Corbusier or not, you have surely seen something he has designed or influenced. Whether it is an architectural drawings on the gallery walls of the MoMA or a magnificently designed building itself, Le Corbusier's output is easily recognizable and undeniably beautiful, and it is no wonder that his work has been rigorously catalogued.
However, the famed and influential architect's own amateur photographs are a lesser known treasure, offering insight into a collection of works in progress and inspirational snapshots. Perchance these images sound enticing to you, well then you're in luck because Nathalie Herschdorfer and Lada Umstätter have collected these photographic fragments of the master's process and arranged them into a volume of visual pleasure. It is all available here.
