Julius Shulman photographing Case Study House #22
Julius Shulman, the greatest architectural photographer, whose name is synonymous with Modernist architecture on the West Coast, died this week at age 98. He was an inspiring photographer who left an impressive archive documenting an important era in the history of architecture. His iconic images of these modernist gems, rising out of the sun drenched canyons and desert of Southern California, so memorable and timeless, are as coveted today as the houses they represent. The Getty now owns 260,000 prints, negatives and transparencies of his work.
