Image of the Day

Ezra Stoller (American, 1915–2004): Chamberlain Cottage – Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, Wayland, MA 1942 (Gelatin Silver Print) on view through February 12 at Yossi Milo Gallery in New York as part of a retrospective of Stoller's photographs of iconic modern architecture. From the release:
A pioneer in the field of architectural photography, Ezra Stoller was commissioned by architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Paul Rudolph, Eero Saarinen, I.M. Pei, Marcel Breuer and Richard Meier [and Northwest modernist Arthur Erickson -ed.], because of his unique ability to capture the building according to the architect’s vision and to lock it into the architectural canon. His photographs convey a three-dimensional experience of architectural space through a two-dimensional medium, with careful attention to vantage point and lighting conditions, as well as to line, color, form and texture.
Visit Yossi Milo Gallery in person or online for more images and info.
