Product Description

Review

Le Corbusier and the Power of Photography is an irresistible visual scrapbook. --Vogue

Remarkable --Another Mag

Le Corbusier will love this exhaustive book --Amateur Photographer

Just when you thought there wasn't any more to write about the wily old Swiss iconoclast, along comes another rich tome with insight as to exactly why Corbusier continues to exert such a hold. --Wallpaper*

A volume of visual pleasure. --Juxtapoz

From another perspective the book provides a more intimate way to access Le Corbusier's creative process and some of the surprising inspirations behind his work. --Architect's Newspaper Blog

Superb and scholarly. --The Wall Street Journal

striking --Burlington Magazine

I cannot tell you what the content was like as I bought it as a gift but felt that the combination of the talent of Le Corbusier as an architect and designer combined with photography would make foe an interesting volume

Handsome but inconclusive volume 4 July 2013
By Wayne Dynes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Le Corbusier excelled in three fields: architecture, painting, and writing. This book seeks to establish his rank in a fourth field: photography. In my view it does not succeed. Although Corbu took many photographs in the course of his life, most of them seem to be out of focus, overexposed or underexposed. He used some rather grainy photos by others in his books, but they make his points less effectively than his fine line drawings. The second part of the book is an anthology of photographs by others, which does not establish much. In truth there is no substitute for seeing the buildings themselves, as the architect would have wanted. The book is handsomely produced by the publisher, though.
