Lucien Hervé: Building Images
A universe in the making, capturing the light and darkness from the cosmos, infinitely expandable yet simplified to convey it's poetic essence, intimate from within yet mysterious in its powerful rhythm: such are the images that mirror the creative dialog that existed between the photographer Lucien Hervé and the greatest architects of the time. Hinting at a future that is already an irretrievable past, making human sense of the cold chaos of creation, the effort that it demanded, the calm detachment that it produced after it's completion, the photographer is the silent eye that remembers an infinity of details conveyed in the most simple way.
Hervé's work is a rare composition of dream, feeling and genius in an architectural space of which he is both the master designer and prisoner, the dreaming inhabitant and the creative thinker.
