Julius Shulman (October 10, 1910 – July 15, 2009) is renowned for some of the most iconic photographs in architectural history. His images seem to reveal the essence of an architect's vision and capture the spirit of the eras in which they were produced. … Julius Shulman's photographs of Southern California's inventive modern homes promoted the careers of numerous visionary architects including Richard Neutra, John Lautner, and Pierre Koenig. Mid-20th-century homes come alive through Shulman's compositions of carefully posed models set against streamlined furnishings and breathtaking vistas. ... Julius Shulman's intuitive timing and distinctive camera angles produced bold portraits of hundreds of modern structures beyond Los Angeles. Through Shulman's lens, buildings become unique studies of mass, shadow, and light.... Shulman shares his acquired knowledge in his book The Photography of Architecture and Design: Photographing Buildings, Interiors, and the Visual Arts (1977). Shulman enhanced the text with revealing photographs of the tools of his trade. ... While global demands for his talent allowed Shulman to travel extensively, Los Angeles has always been his home. The thousands of photographs he has taken of the city now serve as significant visual records of the unique urban fabric of Los Angeles. Poetic images of subjects not normally associated with Shulman, such as streetscapes, movie palaces, factories, and bustling markets, highlight the energy and style of a metropolis that continues to define itself.
