Balthazar Korab & Eero Saarinen - Dialogue between photography and architecture 12.3. – 18.4.2010 Print E-mail

Virka Gallery presents an exhibition of photographs by Balthazar Korab (b. 1926), who worked both as a designer and photographer for Eero Saarinen & Associates between the years 1955 and 1958. Korab documented the progress of architectural projects from their initial sketches to completion. In so doing he succeeded in capturing images of the work of firm during its most innovative and productive period.

Balthazar Korab is an expert at interpreting the architecture of Eero Saarinen & Associates, and thus his photography is able to express and define Eero Saarinen’s (1910-1961) architecture with a deep understanding and appreciation what architects strive for. In his own words he is “more of an architect that practices photography than a photographer who is familiar with architecture.” 

The exhibited photographs represent a special selection of Balthazar Korab's photographs of Eero Saarinen’s architecture. The selection was chosen in collaboration with Balthazar Korab, Monica Korab and Christian Korab. 

Balthazar Korab & Eero Saarinen - Dialogue between photography and architecture exhibition is in Virka Gallery 12th March – 18th April 2010, 
open Mon-Fri 9-19, Sat-Sun 11 - 17. Address: Pohjoisesplanadi 11 - 13 and Sofiankatu 1. Free entrance.
