NPR has a blog post about Ezra Stoller written by Claire O’Neill. The piece describes the trajectory of Stoller’s work from industrial design to modernist architecture to art. Stoller was vehemently interested in the work of recording architecture, not creating art, but, as Erica Stoller states “While he didn’t strive to be an artist, the photographs are meaningful and beautiful works of art.”
The recent exhibition of Stoller’s photographs at Yossi Milo Gallery has been taken down.
The meaningful and beautiful works of art, though, can be seen in the recent monograph Ezra Stoller Photographer and in a slideshow in the NPR article
Ezra Stoller: Beyond Architecture is currently on view at the Yossi Milo Gallery.

Julie Iovine reviews the current Ezra Stoller exhibition at Yossi Milo Gallery in the Wall Street Journal, in a piece titled The Confidence of an America in Full Stride.
The review describes the range of Stoller’s work, from industrial commissions to iconic mid-century buildings, and the consistency and clarity of these images. Ultimately, Iovine writes, “the pointedly unblemished images he has left us with are all the more resonant than factual reality, showing us America in full stride.
The exhibition is on view through March 2 at Yossi Milo Gallery in New York.
Please join us at Yossi Milo Gallery for a special event on February 13.

The current exhibition of Ezra Stoller’s photographs at Yossi Milo Gallery is reviewed by Michael Kimmelman in the NY Times.
Kimmelman describes the photographs as intimately tied with our cultural understanding of not only the buildings that they record, but an entire time period: “Stoller’s pictures enshrine an era and an aesthetic that still speak to us.”
The full review and accompanying slideshow are at the NY Times.
Ezra Stoller’s current exhibition at Yossi Milo Gallery is reviewed on Architizer.
Raquel Laneri writes that the show “highlights the photographer’s rarely seen images of industry, technology, transportation, and working-class Americans. These photographs, like Stoller’s architectural work, capture the vitality, excitement, danger, and struggles of post-war, industrial America and urban life. But they also offer a glimpse of an America that has all but vanished today.”
In addition to the review, there is a collection of images from the exhibition at Architizer.
