Artstor is collaborating with Esto Photographics to digitize and distribute images of modern architecture from the archive of Ezra Stoller (1915 – 2004), who is widely recognized as the leading American architectural photographer of the 20th century. A recent release of more than 5,800 images is now available in the Digital Library. This set includes buildings designed by Edward Larrabee Barnes, Pietro Belluschi, Marcel Breuer, Gordon Bunshaft, Arthur Charles Erickson, Ulrich Joseph Franzen, Walter Gropius, Philip Johnson, Morris Lapidus, I. M. Pei, Eero Saarinen, Hugh Asher Stubbins, Jr., Kenzo Tange, and Frank Lloyd Wright, among others.

Stoller founded Esto Photographics Inc. in 1966 as an architectural photo agency. Now directed by his daughter Erica Stoller, Esto arranges photography assignments for collaborating architectural photographers. The agency collaborates with VIEW Pictures in the UK and with archenova in Germany, stock agencies concentrating on images of architecture. Esto also manages a comprehensive stock photography archive relating to architecture, interior design, antiques, folk art, and Americana with images contributed by more than 100 photographers. Esto has partnered with Artstor to share two important collections from the stock archive, those of Ezra Stoller and of Wayne Andrews, in the Digital Library for scholarly and academic uses.
