"Celebrating a talent who traded drafting tools for a camera, Balthazar Korab collects his images of buildings by Eero Saarinen, Minoru Yamaski, and other modern greats, as well as his still relevant series on American car culture." -- Elle Decor
"[Korab's] work's enduring value is as a document of the push and pull of midcentury, the conflict between the curve and the cube at the moment America became the center of world design." -- Wall Street Journal
"Mr. Korab, now 86, left design to be an in-house photographer, documenting masterworks like Mr. Saarinen's T.W.A. Terminal and Miller House. His story and images, dramatized by more than a touch of chiaroscuro, are collected in "Balthazar Korab: Architect of Photography," by John Comazzi, just out from Princeton Architectural Press ($40)." --- The New York Times
"Mr. Korab captured the romance, moodiness and humanity of even the most austere post-war buildings." -- David Dunlap, The New York Times
"Highlights the rich, black-and-white photography of Bathazar Korab, whose sharp imagery helped give a face to modernist architecture in mid-century America." -- Dwell
