Abstract
Tim Benton is an extraordinary historian of Le Corbusier. Thirty years ago, he published Villas of Le Corbusier, 1920–1930; in 1987, the prized catalogue to the London centennial exhibition Le Corbusier: Architect of the Century; and, in 2007, Rhetoric of Modernism: Le Corbusier as a Lecturer. In LC Foto: Le Corbusier Secret Photographer, Benton combines his knowledge of the architect with a remarkable understanding of architectural photography to reveal Le Corbusier’s personal activity as a photographer during the only two periods of the architect’s life when he took pictures: 1907–17 and 1936–38.
