JULIUS SHULMAN & JUERGEN NOGAI
In 1989, Julius Shulman formally "retired" from his profession as an architectural photographer. Little did he know that the next 20 years would be filled with major museum and gallery exhibitions, publications, worldwide recognition of his vast achievements, and a rebirth of his photographic career on a schedule that often out-paces his earlier production. In 2000 Shulman was introduced to the German industrial/architectural photographer, Juergen Nogai, who had come up to Shulman's studio to meet and pay homage to the "maestro." Something clicked between the two, and they have been collaborating photographically ever since. Not only have they re-interpreted key architectural works previously made iconic by Shulman, but they are also being commissioned to document the work of important contemporary architects. The duo has also created stunning records of visual eccentricities such as their image of L.A. City Hall vibrantly illuminated in brilliant red light.
