Balthazar Korab (1926–2013) — architect and photographer, has documented the places where we live and work. His photographs have been exhibited in prominent museums such as; The Museum of Modern Art–New York, The Detroit Institute of Arts, Centre Canadian d’Architecture–Montreal and The Venice Biennale. His work is included in many collections such as; The Chase Manhattan Collection, The Menil Collection and The United States Library of Congress. Korab has authored and contributed to a vast number of publications including; Genius Loci: Cranbrook, I Tetti di Roma, Gamberaia, Columbus Indiana, Encyclopedia of American Architecture, The Saarinen House, and multiple volumes on the works of Frank Lloyd Wright. He is an architect with a passion for natures lessons and mans interventions. His images are born out of a deep emotional investment in their subject. Their content is never sacrificed for mere visual effects, nor is a polemic activism intended to prevail over an aesthetic balance.
