The life and works of the storied Julius Shulman0
Though I had always loved his photos, my curiosity into architectural photographer Julius Shulman’s lifetime of works didn’t begin until he passed away this summer. I had seen his photographs flashed throughout the pages of coffee table tomes and even have postcards with photos he took (my favorite being of Case Study House #22 by Pierre Konig) hanging on my wall. My favorite image captures two women sitting inside a living room with large glass walls all around as the house seems to dangle precariously off a hillside that overlooks the Los Angeles skyline. So I was naturally ecstatic when I saw the trailer for his documentary called Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman and saw that exact photo being used on the movie poster. One glimpse of the trailer and the sheer beauty of the images the man captured in his storied career will astound even Shulman neophytes.
Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman opens October 9th at the Cinema Village (22 E. 12th St.) followed by a post-screening Q+A with director Eric Brickner.
