For the first time a series of photographs of the architect Le Corbusier by Willy Rizzo can be seen until 20th December 2012 at Maison La Roche in Paris.

Toward the end of 1953, Willy Rizzo took a series of portraits of the architect Le Corbusier, three of which were published in the magazine Paris Match.

Much of Rizzo’s work was done in medium-format color. These photographs have not been published since.

As part of the events organized by La Chaux-de-Fonds exploring the relationship between Le Corbusier and photography, the Fondation Le Corbusier is presenting, in collaboration with Willy Rizzo, a selection of original color and black-and-white prints at the Maison La Roche.
