The presentation will include images from Pare's Le Corbusier portfolio appearing in the Museum of Modern Art — New York exhibition "Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes." The portfolio was made possible by a grant from the AVC foundation, Moscow, and was first presented in "Le Corbusier: Creation and Secrets, from Painting to Architecture" at the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. It will also be featured at Fodacion La Caixa in Barcelona and Madrid. Le Corbusier (Charles-Edouard Jeanneret), born in 1887, was one of the most influential personalities in 20th century culture.

"The Bunnen Collection" galleries on Wieland Skyway Level will be open for viewing after the event until 9 p.m.This event is part of the Atlanta Celebrates Photography Festival.
