Description

The work of designers and architects in the early to mid-20th century entered
the consciousness of a wider audience through the images of important
photographers, including Ezra Stoller and Julius Shulman, who were masters of
this important genre. Indeed, photographs of modern architecture and interiors
made it possible for readers of design magazines to discover and to appreciate
the groundbreaking work of Florence Knoll, Eero Saarinen, and Philip Johnson,
among others. In this conversation, Erica Stoller will talk about the emergence
and development of the work of her father, Ezra, and Paul Warchol will talk about
his own photographs, which encompass some of the most notable
modern buildings of the 20th century. Moderated by Donald Albrecht.


Donald Albrecht is an independent curator and curator of architecture
and design at the Museum of the City of New York.

Erica Stoller is an artist, and the director of Esto, a photography agency and
archive specializing in images of architecture.

Paul Warchol is an architectural photographer who is known for his images of
important modern and contemporary buildings.
