In Memoriam: Julius Shulman (1910-2009)

The photography world lost a legend yesterday with the passing of Julius Shulman. His images of modern architecture and in particular, California Modernism, are iconic and will stand the test of time, even if the buildings don't. I can't imagine a Richard Neutra house without visualizing it as Julius Shulman shot it. The Smithsonian conducted a lovely interview with Julius Shulman in 1990 which is worth checking out to learn more about his life and career. Julius Shulman was the Avedon of architecture and will be greatly missed.
