Balthazar Korab R.I.P.

Bathazar Korab, architect-turned-documenter of buildings died yesterday.

"The Michigan chapter of the AIA announced the passing of the Detroit-based photographer, who was born in Budapest in 1926. The Hungarian native received his architectural training in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, and despite his tutelage there, would find work in the offices of modernists like Le Corbusier himself. In 1955, Korab was hired by Eero Saarinen as the architect’s in-house photographer and in whose employment, he would capture some of his most stunning images, including those of TWA Terminal and the Miller House."
