9781616890414: Balthazar Korab: Architect of Photography

No one captured the midcentury modernism of the Mad Men era better than Balthazar Korab. As one of the period's most prolific and celebrated architecture photographers, Korab captured images as graceful and elegant as his subjects. His iconic photographs for master architects immortalized their finest works, while leaving his own indelible impact on twentieth century visual culture. In this riveting illustrated biography-the first dedicated solely to his life and career-author John Comazzi traces Korab's circuitous path to a career in photography. He paints a vivid picture of a young man forced to flee his native Hungary, who goes on to study architecture at the famed École des Beaux-Arts in Paris before emigrating to the United States and launching his career as Eero Saarinen's on-staff photographer. The book includes a portfolio of more than one hundred images from Korab's professionally commissioned architecture photography as well as close examinations of Saarinen's TWA Terminal and the Miller House in Columbus, Indiana.

Review :

"Celebrating a talent who traded drafting tools for a camera, Balthazar Korab collects his images of buildings by Eero Saarinen, Minoru Yamaski, and other modern greats, as well as his still relevant series on American car culture." -- Elle Decor

"[Korab's] work's enduring value is as a document of the push and pull of midcentury, the conflict between the curve and the cube at the moment America became the center of world design." -- Wall Street Journal

"Mr. Korab, now 86, left design to be an in-house photographer, documenting masterworks like Mr. Saarinen's T.W.A. Terminal and Miller House. His story and images, dramatized by more than a touch of chiaroscuro, are collected in "Balthazar Korab: Architect of Photography," by John Comazzi, just out from Princeton Architectural Press ($40)." --- The New York Times

"Mr. Korab captured the romance, moodiness and humanity of even the most austere post-war buildings." -- David Dunlap, The New York Times

"Highlights the rich, black-and-white photography of Bathazar Korab, whose sharp imagery helped give a face to modernist architecture in mid-century America." -- Dwell
