In Memoriam: Balthazar Korab, Architect and Photographer

Balthazar Korab, a Hungarian-born photographer known for his images of modernist buildings, died yesterday. He started as an architect but found his passion in image-making. He was hired by Eero Saarinen as a documentarian, and captured part of the architect's process as he designed the University of Pennsylvania's Hill House. Korab's more dramatic images include buildings by Mies van der Rohe, Louis Kahn, I.M. Pei, Philip Johnson and Frank Lloyd Wright—including Wright's Elkins Park synagogue (right). A book of his photos was presented by President Clinton to the president of Hungary.
