It is impossible to overstate the importance of photography s role in shaping the world s perception of architecture. And towering above the ever-growing crowd of image-makers is Ezra Stoller, an architectural photographer of immeasurable consequence in documenting the history of modern architecture both known and unknown in the United States and beyond. This book is one of the first to present the breadth of Stoller s largely unseen archive of images, brought to life through exquisite color and duotone black-and-white reproductions.

Reviews for Ezra Stoller: A Photographic History of Modern American Architecture

The photographs of Ezra Stoller (1915-2004) have long been recognized for indelibly communicating the strengths of postwar architecture in the U.S. Now, Ezra Stoller: A Photographic History of Modern American Architecture, by Pierluigi Serraino, expands on our knowledge and appreciation with many rarely seen images. -Architectural Record A new monograph of Stoller's magisterial images of the architecture of the American century. -The New Yorker Online In this powerful retrospective... Serraino argues that the key to such success lay both in Stoller's serious work ethic and his ability to understand an architect's intent for a building and translate it through his lens. This is the perfect volume for both fans of Modernist architecture and general photography alike. -Publishers Weekly In a monumental visual homage to the power of architecture under a lens, this largely black-and-white coffee table tome leaves nothing out. -Architect's Newspaper A new book surveys the stunning work of Ezra Stoller, the most prominent photographer of 20th-century American architecture. -Architectural Digest Online Ezra Stoller: A Photographic History of Modernism, offers an unprecedented exploration of his archive and what made his images so captivating. While Stoller's photographs have become one of the primary records of midcentury architecture, never before have so many of them been published in a single tome. -Curbed A new book released by Phaidon, presenting 450 images from Stoller's vast archive, will make any recipient a fan of the legendary photographer, and of course, an appreciator of postwar architecture, too. -Metropolis Online
