Julius Shulman Photography

Julius Shulman was an American architectural photographer who published many of his notable works during the 1960’s. Shulman’s photography is responsible for the worldwide spread of California mid-century modern design.

“The clarity of his work demanded that architectural photography had to be considered as an independent art form. Each Shulman image unites perception and understanding for the buildings and their place in the landscape. The precise compositions reveal not just the architectural ideas behind a building’s surface, but also the visions and hopes of an entire age. A sense of humanity is always present in his work, even when the human figure is absent from the actual photographs.”

Many of Shulman’s iconic photo’s use the architecture of Frank Llloyd Wright, Pierre Koenig, Charles Eames, Richard Neutra, and Raphael Soriano as their subject matter.
