Julius Shulman: Visual Drama

Annotate & Collect
"Julius had an eye for visual drama. With modernist buildings, he loved capturing the strong lines stretching toward the horizon, the merging of inside and outside, and the often heroic exposed structures. Some of his earlier shots, in more enclosed, traditional buildings, lack this sense of visual drama. In my opinion, he was of course an amazing photographer, but he also found a style of architecture that really matched his sense of optimism and excitement, and it showed in his pictures. His less “architectural” pictures were able to hook you in the same way. He again used strong lines and diagonals that could “suck you in.” He often framed pictures like a filmmaker. And he knew what it was about each shot that would make you stop in your tracks."
- Sam Lubell

Julius Shulman (October 10, 1910 – July 15, 2009) was a pioneer of modern architecture photography, shooting the work of mid-century modern architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, and Pierre Koenig.
