DESCRIPTION

Julius Shulman (1910 - 2009) is widely regarded as the most important architectural photographer in history. Over an eighty year period Shulman not only documented the work of many of the great 20th century architects, but he elevated the genre of commercial architectural photography to a fine art form. After making over 260,000 images, Shulman announced his "retirement" in 1989, but the next twenty years were filled with major museum and gallery exhibitions around the world and numerous books. In 2005, the Getty Research Institute acquired Shulman's archive, but he continued to work for the remainder of his life. Craig Krull Gallery will be opening a major survey of his work on September 10, 2011. This exhibition will include a range of iconic photographs of works by architects such as Neutra, Koenig, Lautner, Frey, and Eames, as well as early images from Shulman's personal files.

This exhibition is in Bergamot Station, Building B7
