In 1949 the photographer Lucien Hervé took photographs of Unité dHabitation, an innovative apartment building in Marseille, France. He sent them to the buildings architect, Le Corbusier, who immediately realised that after forty years of searching he had finally found a photographer with an architects soul. Their seminal collaboration is extensively documented in this album of 1200 cardboard sheets of Hervés carefully edited, sequenced and labelled contact prints, housed at the Fondation Le Corbusier in Paris. Originating as a vehicle for dissemination of the architects work and as a commercial venture for the photographer, these contact sheets now form an extraordinary archive of modernist architecture and photography in the mid-twentieth century.
