Richard Pare is an architectural photographer; in the 1970s and 1980s he was the founder and head of the Canadian Center for Architecture’s photography collection; one of the most beautiful collections in the world.
For almost ten years, Richard Pare has roamed the roads of the world, knowing how to open the doors of buildings inaccessible to the public and those dedicated to the secret of the family intimacy of Corbusier. Deployed on four continents, the buildings built by Le Corbusier between 1907 and 1965 had never been embraced by the objective of a photographer as attentive to their presence in the landscape as the fine grain of their texture.
No ideal or staid pictures in the views of almost sixty buildings. Richard Pare know how to catch the changing of seasons and of the daily cycles and shows how the use – sometimes sacrilegious- and the ravages of time have given the wood, the brick, the concrete patina whose mute suffering are beared.
