Julius Shulman, one of the great masters of modern architectural photography, is the preeminent recorder of early California modernism. Shulman documented the famous Cast Study House Program, and architecture of the 1930s through the 1980s, especially that of Southern California, but also country- and worldwide. Through his work, Shulman defined the image of Los Angeles and framed the architecture of the time for a global audience. In addition to an overview of Shulman's career, this book emphasizes Shulman's method of constructing photographic views to compose striking photographs that transcend reality and capture the spirit, time and place of a work of architecture. From the Old House Journal library.
