Format: Hardcover
Great book, b&w photography. More then enough technical and historical background. Nice overview of the Schulman legacy. This is a forgotten part of architectural photography.

HASH(0x98d8d21c) out of 5 stars Excellent catalog of a great body of work 27 Feb. 2006
By Bukkene Bruse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This catalog provides a history and overview of Shulman's work, along with a nice biography of the photographer. The print quality is good, and the selection of photographs convey the breadth and nature of Shulman's career from the 1930's to 1980's. As a whole, Shuman's work illustrates how purpose so often underlies great art.

In addition to the historical and catalog aspects of the book, the narrative provides some excellent instruction in architectural photography. A must for any photography library.

HASH(0x98d8d270) out of 5 stars Outstanding 4 Jan. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Julius Shulman's work is simply amazing and this book is a great tribute to that work. This publication is far better than the Taschen book. A must for any modern architecture/photography fan.

HASH(0x993e6ad4) out of 5 stars My son was blown away 17 Dec. 2013
By Mimi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My son has many books on architecture. I gave him this book as a gift and he absolutely loved it! He is familiar with Schulman's work but this book contained some that he had never seen before. We both agree that Schulman is a giant among architectural photographers.

By Vincent W King - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Rosa did a wonderful job about Julius Shulman, his life, his photography, and philosophy in creating some of the most iconic of architectural photographs. Great photos to accompany. Some are famous, others not so, but demonstrated Shulman's diversity of work.
