Ezra Stoller

Ezra Stoller (16 May 191529 October 2004) was an American architectural photographer, born in Chicago.

Stoller's interest in photography began while he was an architecture student at New York University when he began making lantern slides and photographs of architectural models, drawings and sculpture. After his graduation in 1939 he concentrated on photography. His work has featured landmarks of modern architecture including Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's Seagram Building, Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water, Alvar Aalto's Finnish Pavilion at the 1939 New York World's Fair, and Stoller is often cited in aiding the spread of the Modern Movement. In 1961, Stoller was the first ever recipient of the AIA Gold Medal for Photography. Stoller's photographs were featured in the book . In his later years, Stoller founded Esto Photographics, a commercial photography firm currently directed by his daughter Erica Stoller.

He died in Williamstown, Massachusetts on 29 October 2004 from complications of a stroke.
