Considered the dean of American architectural photography, Ezra Stoller worked from the late 1930s into the 1980s. His images convey the three-dimensional experience of architecture through a two-dimensional medium with careful attention to vantage point and lighting conditions as well as line, color, form, and texture. Stoller's work included photographs of science and technology, factories and industrial production, plus commercial and residential architecture. His photographs can be seen as social history as well as documents of design and construction.
