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.
