ARTstor Mid-Century Modern Expansion

ARTstor has recently announced the availability of Ezra Stoller photographs to its subscribers. Ezra Stoller (1915-2004) is primarily known for his iconic images of modernist architecture, but his educational training was as an architect. He developed an interest in photography as an architecture student at New York University, initially creating glass lantern slides of architectural models. In 1961, the AIA awarded him its first Gold Medal for Photography.

ARTstor has been expanding in the realm of architecture, and one hopes that the database will soon include more high quality images of architectural drawings, models, and blueprints.
