About Ezra Stoller

Considered the most influential architectural photographer of the 20th century, Ezra Stoller lived and worked during the height of American Modernism, which he captured in iconic photographs that have shaped the cultural memory of the equally iconic structures they document. His archive of more than 50,000 images is a record of industry and innovation, expressed through the muscular buildings, busy factory workers, and sweeping lines of mid-century America. Shooting in both color and black-and-white, Stoller was exquisitely attuned to the buildings and spaces he photographed—ranging from Eero Saarinen’s TWA Terminal to the Heinz Ketchup factory—framing them with precise attention to vantage point, lighting conditions, and the unique qualities of their form. He could effectively encompass an entire architectural work, or the sweep of a factory floor, or break them down into magnificent details and poetic visual fragments.
