Esto is built on the image collection of Ezra Stoller (1915-2004) who is considered the dean of American architectural photographers. Stoller studied architecture in the 1930s but turned his attention to photography while he was still in school. For nearly 50 years, in the middle decades of the 20th Century, Stoller documented important modern architecture. The strength of this collection remains at the core of Esto even today.
Now Esto represents a group of photographers who concentrate on architecture, design and the built environment. These include Peter Aaron, Francis Dzikowski, Jeff Goldberg, Anton Grassl, Peter Mauss, David Sundberg, and Albert Vecerka
Historic American architecture is well represented by more than 4000 black and white images by Wayne Andrews.
