ABOUT THIS PHOTOGRAPH
Hungarian-American photographer Balthazar Korab spent much of his career photographing some of the most iconic buildings of the 20th century. Named after former US Secretary of State John Dulles, the sweeping concrete roof evoking an airplane taking off was designed in 1958 by Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen, and jointly dedicated by then President John F. Kennedy and his predecessor Dwight Eisenhower. Whilst the exact date is not known, the cars to the right are (from front to back) a '63 American Rambler, an MG Midget, and a '63 Chevrolet Impala. As for the gorgeous purple sunset? Another genuine colour photograph by Korab during the same period (or even the same day) gives us a glimpse of the future of flight nestling in the Virginian landscape. – Jordan J. Lloyd
