Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Ezra Stoller s iconic photographs of 20th-century architectural masterpieces, such as Frank Lloyd Wright s Fallingwater and Mies van der Rohe s Seagram Building, are often cited in aiding the rise of modernism in America. Stoller (1915-2004) elevated architectural photography to an art form, capturing the mood of numerous buildings in their best light. Living and working in New York from the early 1940s to the mid-1970s, Stoller photographed buildings by such architects as Alvar Aalto, Eero Saarinen, Marcel Breuer, Paul Rudolph, and Louis I. Kahn. His striking images earned him the admiration of critics and contemporaries, but few people are aware of the stunning breadth of his oeuvre, which also included domestic and industrial spaces and important editorial depictions of American labor in the 1950s and 1960s. Ezra Stoller, Photographer, a long-awaited and lavishly illustrated survey of Stoller s artistic accomplishments, examines the photographer s full range with a fresh eye and unprecedented scope, offering a unique commentary on postwar America s changing landscape.

[making] them transparent, reliable, truthful witnesses to their time."--Casabella -- Casabella Casabella "A handsome volume on the one-time industrial design student who studied architecture with Edward Durell Stone, photographed homes for Ladies' Home Journal, and carved out a niche for himself as the 'photographer of choice for architects of curtain-walled corporate landmarks,' as critic John Morris Dixon notes in one essay."-Architectural Record Architectural Record Runner-up, Photography/Art category at the 2013 San Francisco Book Festival sponsored by JM Northern Media LLC. -- San Francisco Book Festival JM Northern Media LLC Runner-up in the Photography/Art category at the 2013 New York Book Festival given by JM Northern Media LLC -- New York Book Festival JM Northern Media LLC Winner in the 2013 New York Book Show in the Special Trade, Photography category, sponsored by the Bookbinders' Guild of New York. -- New York Book Show Bookbinders' Guild of New York
