Artstor has collaborated with Esto Photographics and the estate of Wayne Andrews (1913 – 1987) to digitize and distribute approximately 4,000 photographs of American and European architecture, which are now available in the Digital Library. Andrews, a renowned architectural historian and photographer, published extensively on the architectural and social history of the United States, illustrating his publications with his own photographs. He also traveled widely and photographed architecture throughout Europe – including Scandinavia and Russia – as well as in Canada, Mexico, and Brazil. During the 1950s through 1980s, Andrews shot both historical and contemporary architecture, so that coverage extends from medieval to modern architecture. The collection is particularly strong from the 18th through the 20th century, including buildings designed by architects from Charles Bullfinch, Henry Hobson Richardson, and Louis H. Sullivan to Le Corbusier, Eero Saarinen, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
The collection in Artstor represents the complete archive of architectural photographs assembled by Wayne Andrews, which are preserved as large-format, black-and-white negatives. The archive is maintained by Esto Photographics Inc., an architectural photo agency located in Mamaroneck, New York. Esto also manages the archive of its founder Ezra Stoller (1915 – 2004), a premier photographer of modernist architecture. Now directed by his daughter Erica Stoller, Esto arranges new photography assignments for collaborating architectural photographers. Esto has partnered with Artstor to share both the Wayne Andrews and Ezra Stoller archives in the Digital Library for scholarly and educational use.
