Lucien Hervé

Born in 1910 in Hungary, died in 2007

While close to the post-war humanist school (Doisneau, Ronis …), the work of Lucien Hervé is deeply marked by his meeting with architects like Oscar Niemeyer and especially Le Corbusier, of which he becomes the photographer Assigned. Diving frames, oblique views, economy of means and the desire for abstraction characterize his photographic style very different from that of his contemporaries.
