Inspiration - Lucien Hervé
Lucien Hervé was a French-Hungarian photographer well known for his black and white photos of architecture. His collaboration with the infamous Le Corbusier had such an effect on the latter, that resulted in the re-drawing of some of his original plans. Hervé had shown Le Corbusier a completely different view through his photographs. He wrote to Hervé pronouncing him to have "the soul of an architect".
Hervé also collaborated with numerous architects and took photos of modern architecture buildings as well as archeological monuments.
His last work consists of photographs of his apartment in Paris.
