Ezra Stoller, photographer by Nina Rappaport( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Publisher's website

The Seagram building by Ezra Stoller( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set back from the street by a wide marble plaza, Mies van der Rohe's preternaturally elegant Seagram Building exudes a cool command over its International Style brethren along New York's Park Avenue. The sine qua non of late-modern skyscrapers, it has been deemed the greatest building constructed over the last thousand years by no less an authority than New York Times architecture critic Herbert Muschamp." "Animated by evenly spaced I-beams running vertically up and down its facades, the Seagram Building defined "modern classicism" and launched countless imitations. The ultimate in commercial prestige architecture, the building earned the dubious honor of an added luxury levy from the New York Tax Commission." "Acclaimed architectural photographer Ezra Stoller shot his iconic images of the building in two stages: the first, in 1958, just after its completion, and again in 1991, with the surrounding neighborhood dramatically changed." "Mies biographer Frank Schulze provides an introduction describing the history and significance of the building."--Jacket
The TWA Terminal by Ezra Stoller( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eero Saarinen's TWA Terminal stands as the ultimate icon of midcentury modern design. Commissioned in 1956 and completed in 1962, the bird-like terminal at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport was intentionally designed as an eye-catching showpiece that would capture the public's imagination. Its expressionistic concrete exterior and soaring interior spaces did just that, making it one of the most dramatic architectural statements of its day."--Jacket
Whitney Museum of American Art by Ezra Stoller( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ezra Stoller's photographs of the Whitney, taken just after the museum's opening, have become icons themselves - pristine images of the building as Breuer intended it to be seen. Newly commissioned color photographs by Jeff Goldberg portray the museum as the vibrant cultural center it is today." "In his preface, Whitney director Maxwell L. Anderson reflects on the special pleasure of working in the building on a daily basis. K. Michael Hays, the museum's adjunct curator of architecture, provides an introductory essay describing the building's history and significance. Also included is a statement by Breuer, who died in 1981, in which he explains his intentions in the design of this landmark of twentieth-century architecture."--Jacket
Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West by Ezra Stoller( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The interconnected structures he designed for Taliesin West were built of volcanic stone set in concrete, with redwood braces supporting canvas roofs and flaps that opened out to the desert and mountains beyond, providing both ventilation and a seamless connection to the landscape. Strategically placed petroglyphs, remnants of the ancient Hohokam who had once peopled the area, imbue the complex with a resonant link to the history of the region."--Jacket
Guggenheim New York by Ezra Stoller( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Salk Institute by Ezra Stoller( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Yale Art + Architecture Building by Ezra Stoller( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The John Hancock Center by Ezra Stoller( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Architectural photographer Ezra Stoller provides a unique record of the building both during its construction and after its completion. His photographs of workmen casually moving about the nascent structure recall Lewis Hine's classic portraits of the Empire State Building and provide a stark contrast to his images of the finished project, with its luxurious apartments and commercial spaces." "An introduction by Yasmin Sabina Khan, the daughter of the building's celebrated engineer, provides a behind-the-scenes account of the design, construction, and reception of this landmark of modern architecture and engineering."--Jacket
The family of man : the greatest photographic exhibition of all time-- 503 pictures from 68 countries-- by Edward Steichen( Book )

1 edition published in 1955 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conceived as an exhibition for MoMA in New York in 1955, with a catalogue published both by Maco Magazine Corporation and Simon and Schuster, The Family of Man has been heavily criticized, usually for its sentimentality and its disingenuous simplicity. Although indeed sentimental, The Family of Man was not as simple as it looked. ... The de-politicization of the photography was in fact a calculated piece of political image-making, stating that American values were the only universal values, and that the world could be one big happy family under the beneficent guidance of Uncle Sam. ... One of the ironic aspects of the project is the way its whole aesthetic derives from those German and Soviet exhibitions and propaganda books of the 1930s. The sententious tone, the grim determinism, the tendentious ideological stance, even the design, place The Family of Man in the propagandist mode of modernism rather than in the utopian wing to which it nominally aspires. Nevertheless, and this is an important point, it contains many fine photographs."--The Photobook : A History Volume II / Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. London : Phaidon, 2004
Mr. Morgan and his architect by Wayne Andrews( Book )

4 editions published in 1957 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Rudolph : the Florida houses by Christopher Domin( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Rudolph: The Florida Houses catalogs Rudolph's early residential work: over sixty projects built between 1941 and 1962. Rudolph's striking renderings, Ezra Stoller's photographs, and Christopher Domin and Joseph King's insightful text convey the lightness, materiality, and transcendency of Rudolph's early work."--Jacket
