Architecture and its Photography

Julius Shulman was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1910. However, his formative years were spent on a farm in Connecticut, where he developed an appreciation and understanding of the nature of light. Finally moving to California,his sense of space and volume steadily grew. At an early age he already had an interest in photography, but it was not unitl Richard Neutra became interested in some of his snapshots that a great career began. These photographs were of Neutra's kun House in Hollywood, and this chance glance served to produce one of the world's great artists of architectural photography. Shulman's now iconic photograph of Case Study House No. 22 (1960), depicting two young women perched within a glass box above Sunset Boulevard, has become the most famous photograph of architecture in the world. Not only does it capture the formidable lights of Los Angeles at night, but also encapsulates the early 1960s while revealing the genius of this glass and steel structure.
