Balthazar KorabPrinceton Architectural Press
While Balthazar Korab’s photography has been widely published in books on architecture, landscape and design, and his contributions to the representation of midcentury Modern architecture has been greatly celebrated, there has never been a publication dedicated exclusively to his life, career and practice. This book will be the first monograph on Korab and includes a broad and comprehensive presentation of his professional architecture photography. In addition to an extensive portfolio of Korab’s architecture photography, Balthazar Korab highlights previously unpublished images—lesser-known (though no less significant)—produced throughout his career. An thorough, illustrated biography traces the evolution of Korab’s sensibilities and practices as they developed in relation to his life experiences, his training as an architect—unique among his contemporaries—and his rather circuitous path to a career in photography places the collection of photographs into context. A foreword by Cesar Pelli offers further insight into the life of Korab.
