Ezra Stoller Photographs Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture continues on show at New York’s Yossi Milo Gallery until 25 August; an exhibition of photographs by the renowned architectural photographer, highlighting key images of the Lloyd Wright’s most significant works in honour of the 150th anniversary of the architect’s birth.
Throughout his career from the late 1930s to the 1970s, Stoller helped to shape public perception of modern architecture through descriptive and concise images. A prominent figure, he worked closely with Frank Lloyd Wright, as well as other leading architects in the modern movement — Marcel Breuer, Le Corbusier and Paul Rudolph — helping to define attitudes toward post-War contemporary architecture.
Coinciding with the Museum of Modern Art’s exhibition, Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive, photographs include those of the Guggenheim Museum; Fallingwater (the home built partly over a waterfall on Bear Run that is oft-cited as the iconic architect’s most monumental work); Wright’s largest public project, the Marin County Civic Center; and the SC Johnson Research Tower. Evocative and immersive, Stoller’s documenting of one of history’s most talked about architects demonstrate his unrivalled ability to bring these remarkable projects to the public eye; “[Stoller’s work] has made him perhaps the most celebrated architectural photographer of the 20th Century,” noted architecture critic Paul Goldberger. “His pictures played a major role in shaping the public’s perception of what modern architecture is about.”
