Biography

Lucien Hervé (born László Elkán on 7 August 1910 in Hungary, died 26 June 2007 in Paris) was a French photographer of Hungarian origin. He was notable for his architectural photography, beginning with his work for Le Corbusier.

"Lucien Hervé is one of the rare photographers to combine a humanist outlook with an architect's eye. His characteristic style of cropped frames, plunging or oblique views, and pared-down compositions tending toward abstraction distinguish his work from that of his contemporaries."
