I enjoy looking through photos as it stirs up memories, inspiration, and imagination. The NYTimes recently published On the Trail of a Master Photographer in Los Angeles, a story behind the talented architectural photographer Julius Shulman. Who captured modern day living of the 20th Century, forever immortalizing the works of ingenuous Architects; Frank Lloyd Wright, Pierre Koenig, Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler and many others. The article features homes open to the public, a trail I plan to see when in California!
Eric Bricker directed Visual Acoustics a film on Mr. Shulman’s extraordinary career. It brilliantly snapshots the life and work of the photographer. He produced many iconic images, here are two of my favorites: above Case House Study #22 and below the rotunda at the Guggenheim museum.
A quote by Mr. Shulman that I love is: “Architecture affects everybody, from a hospital where you were born, to the schools, grocery stores, library, threatres-every part of a persons life is based upon an Architects presence”.
Which images of Julius Shulman do you love?
Enjoy and thanks for viewing!
