Rene Burri: For Le Corbusier

Rene Burri: For Le Corbusier

by Arthur Ruegg (Editor)


1 New & Used Starting at $114.91


In 1962 the young photographer René Burri, on the staff of the renowned photo agency Magnum and known for his reportage and portraits, presented the architect Le Corbusier with a fold-out book, made with his own hands, containing photographs, dating back to 1953, that he had taken of the architect in various situations. This very personal gift is now a highly prized original owned by the Le Corbusier Foundation in Paris. The photographs it contains show Corbusier at the height of his creativity—in conversation, alone in his studio, at the construction site. They also convey the unmistakable atmosphere of his designs. This scrupulous facsimile reproduction comes with a text by René Burri and commentaries by Corbusier connoisseur and editor Arthur Rüegg.
