Editorial Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle - John King
“This year's best book for fans of mid-century modernism.”—John King, San Francisco Chronicle
Design Observer - Mark Lamster
“Highly recommended.”—Mark Lamster, Design Observer
Oculus
“[A] beautifully-designed and well-written book.”—Oculus
Wallpaper
“Show[s] a new perspective of post-war America, while also offering some of the images that helped define the cultural memory of mid-century design.”—Wallpaper
Modern - Michael Lassell
“Ezra Stoller, Photographer… gives the master the prominence he deserves.”—Michael Lassell, Modern 
Time
“Stoller was…the finest photographer of architectural modernism after WWII.”—Time 
Architect

“From iconic images that capture the rise of Modernism to lesser-known prints celebrating industry and mechanization, the book brings to light the full range of work of the celebrated shutterbug.”—Architect 
Wall Street Journal
“Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, Louis Kahn's Salk Institute, Eero Saarinen's TWA terminal—they're all gloriously reproduced in Ezra Stoller, Photographer, a thorough survey of the lensman's elevated architectural images.”—Wall Street Journal 
Architectural Record - William Morgan
Ezra Stoller, Photographer is a handsome volume on the onetime industrial-design student who studied architecture with Edward Durell Stone, photographed homes for Ladies' Home Journal, and carved out a niche for himself as 'the photographer of choice for architects of curtain-walled corporate landmarks,'"—William Morgan, Architectural Record 
Time Magazine
“Stoller was…the finest photographer of architectural modernism after WWII.”—Time 
Archidose
“...most valuable about this coffee table book is the way it gives equal weight to three realms of Stoller's output—architecture, domestic exteriors and interiors, and industry. . . these images may not have defined Ezra Stoller as we think of him, but they are an integral part of his extensive portfolio and a treat to behold in these pages.”—Archidose 
Architectural Record
“A handsome volume on the one-time industrial design student who studied architecture with Edward Durell Stone, photographed homes for Ladies’ Home Journal, and carved out a niche for himself as the ‘photographer of choice for architects of curtain-walled corporate landmarks,’ as critic John Morris Dixon notes in one essay.”—Architectural Record 
Casabella
"Stoller's photographs, like those of Atget, are evidence for historical occurences: reducing the products of architecture to mere objects, and . . . [making] them transparent, reliable, truthful witnesses to their time."—Casabella
