AIA CES: 1.0 LU

When: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM MONDAY, DECEMBER 10

Where: At The Center
Nina Rappaport and Erica Stoller will present their new book Ezra Stoller, Photographer.

Ezra Stoller (1915–2004) elevated architectural photography to an art form, shooting impeccable images of Modernist buildings. Living and working in New York from the early 1940s to the mid-1970s, he photographed such mid-century masterpieces as Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater and Mies van der Rohe’s Seagram Building, as well as structures by Alvar Aalto, Louis Kahn, Eero Saarinen, and others. Critically acclaimed for his precise attention to form, detail, and light, Stoller is often cited as aiding the rise of Modernism in America. He received the AIA Architectural Photography Medal in 1961.

However, he is less well known as an accomplished photographer of industrial and domestic spaces. Ezra Stoller, Photographer examines the full extent of Stoller’s oeuvre, highlighting his editorial spreads of homes and factories during the 1950s and 1960s, to provide a fresh perspective on his unparalleled portraits of post-war America.

Nina Rappaport is an architectural critic, curator, and historian. Erica Stoller is the director of Esto, the photo agency founded by her father, and manages the archive of Ezra Stoller’s work.
