> DESCRIPTION
Recognized by many as the most important architectural photographer in history, Julius Shulman's extraordinary career now spans eight decades. Over the years, he has worked with such giants as Schindler, Eames, Koenig, Lautner, and Neutra. In fact, Shulman is responsible for documenting and interpreting about 90% of Neutra's work, which led the architect to the realization that, "His
work will survive me. Film is stronger and good glossy prints are easier to transport than brute concrete, stainless steel, or even ideas." Even though the Getty Research Institute acquired Shulman's vast archives two years ago, the photographer is now busier than ever and has taken on a working partner, Juergen Nogai. Among their many projects, this collaborative team has photographed Philip Johnson's Glass House for its opening to the public, the restored and redeveloped Griffith Observatory, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, as well as the re-photographing of Case Study Houses and Neutra's Kaufmann House. The exhibition at Craig Krull Gallery will consist of color photographs made by Shulman and Nogai over the past five years and will also celebrate Mr. Shulman's 97th birthday on the 10th of October. ,


Concurrently, the gallery will present an exhibition of black and white nighttime aerial photographs of Los Angeles made by Michael Light. Photographed from a helicopter on one summer evening two years ago, these images are, according to Light, "about darkness, terror and the sublime beauty of our own handiwork mirroring the celestial vault above," but he concludes that they are primarily about the vastness of the Southern California grid. Light acknowledges his debt to Shulman's mid-century images of that grid, but Lighf s work comes out of an awareness that L.A. is essentially a dry, arid place. This body of work is part of an ongoing series of aerial images of the American West that address issues of scale, vertigo, and land /water use with overtones of 19th century geographical photo expeditions. Like the other projects in this series, Light exhibits the images individually, as 40x50" pigments prints on the wall, but also in the form of large-scale artist books displayed on easels.
