John Margolies

John Margolies (1940-2016) was an American architectural critic and renowned photographer. He photographed throughout the USA, from Miami to New Jersey, featuring restaurants, gas stations, movie theaters, miniature golf courses and resorts. He captured the roadside prosperity structures of the post-WWII era, and his photography contributed to the postmodernist movement. Margolies was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship in 1978.
