After watching twice Visual Acoustics: The Modernism Of Julius Shulman, a documentary about his career and life as an architectural photographer, I would recommend totally this film and again I got surprisingly satisfied of his great simple beauty of mid 20th. century architecture and furniture designs. Lines, angles and different textures + the black & white contrast of his pictures.

Julius Shulman is renowned for some of the most iconic photographs in architectural history. His images seem to reveal the essence of an architect’s vision and capture the spirit of the eras in which they were produced. His distinctive camera angles produced portraits of hundreds of modern structures beyond Los Angeles. He has helped define Modernism for the general public through his photos.

Framing the California Lifestyle. Julius Shulman’s photographs of Southern California’s inventive modern homes promoted the careers of numerous visionary architects including Richard Neutra, John Lautner, and Pierre Koenig. Mid-20th-century homes come alive through Shulman’s compositions of carefully posed models set against streamlined furnishings and breathtaking vistas. Here you have some photo examples.
