Summary "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 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 mid-1930s to the 1990s, 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 archive, which also included domestic and industrial spaces and important editorial depictions of American labor from the 1940s through the 1990s"--Dust jacket flap.
