Description

Balthazar Korab - Architect of Photography

No one captured the midcentury modernism of the Mad Men era better than Balthazar Korab. As one of the period’s most prolific and celebrated architecture photographers, Korab captured images as graceful and elegant as his subjects. His iconic photographs for master architects immortalized their finest works, while leaving his own indelible impact on twentieth century visual culture. In this riveting illustrated biography— the first dedicated solely to his life and career—author John Comazzi traces Korab’s circuitous path to a career in photography. He paints a vivid picture of a young man forced to flee his native Hungary, who goes on to study architecture at the famed École des Beaux-Arts in Paris before emigrating to the United States and launching his career as Eero Saarinen’s on-staff photographer. The book includes a portfolio of more than one hundred images from Korab’s professionally commissioned architecture photography as well as close examinations of Saarinen’s TWA Terminal and the Miller House in Columbus, Indiana.

• Photographed buildings include Mies van der Rohe’s S. R. Crown Hall, Le Corbusier’s Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University, Louis Kahn’s Kimbell Art Museum and Salk Institute, Minoru Yamasaki’s World Trade Center, Richard Meier’s Douglas House, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, and Jørn Utzon’s Sydney Opera House, among many others

• Photos document finished buildings, and architects in their studios and at work

• Foreword by architect Cesar Pelli
