Ezra Stoller: Beyond Architecture
January 24, 2013
through March 2, 2013
“Ezra Stoller: Beyond Architecture,” at the Yossi Milo Gallery in Chelsea, features rarely-seen images selected from the Stoller archive specifically to highlight the legendary photographer’s eye for capturing industry, technology, transportation and working-class Americans at mid-century. The exhibition covers a wide range of his work, including images commissioned by Fortune, Architectural Forum, and House Beautiful magazines in the 1940s and for commercial projects for IBM, Upjohn Pharmaceuticals and CBS in the 1940s and 1950s.
Ezra Stoller (1914–2004) is recognized as one of the most influential photographers of Modern architecture. He created iconic images of mid-century buildings that help define the cultural memory of structures such as TWA Terminal, Seagram Building and Guggenheim Museum. This exhibition is organized in conjunction with the release of Ezra Stoller: Photographer edited by DOCOMOMO NY/Tri-state board member Nina Rappaport and Erica Stoller. The book is the most complete oeuvre of Stoller’s work to date with essays by the editors and by John Dixon, Akiko Busch and Andy Grundberg.
DOCOMOMO NY/Tri-State is hosting a private gallery tour led by Erica Stoller on Wednesday February 13 with a reception following the tour. Stay tuned for an announcement about registration via email or check our website in early February.
