Julius Shulman 1910-2009

Legendary photographer Julius Shulman died July 15th at the age of 98. His iconic documentary images of design and architecture helped define the modernist era. A resident of Los Angeles since 1920, Julius Shulman photographed homes in Southern California and across the globe for nearly eight decades. His images of Pierre Koenig's Case Study House No. 22 (1960) in Los Angeles and Richard J. Neutra's Kaufmann House (1947) in Palm Springs are among the most recognizable and iconic architectural photographs of the 20th century. I certainly knew his photographs before I knew who he was, and I think they helped spark my interest in design.
