Product Description

About the Author

A resident of Los Angeles since 1920, Julius Shulman has been documenting modernist architecture 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. Shulman's interest in photography developed into a career when he photographed Neutra's Kun Residence in Los Angeles with his Kodak Vestpocket camera in 1936. Neutra admired young Shulman's images and continued to commission his work. Other leading architects of the time followed suit, as did hundreds of magazines, newspapers, and book publishers. Shulman's numerous awards include the Architectural Photography Medal from the American Institute of Architects (1969), a lifetime achievement award from the International Center of Photography in New York (1998), and honorary doctorates from various academic institutions.

Very impressive tome indeed. This arrived today and I was surprised at how big and heavy it is. If nothing else, it should serve as an excellent spider crusher (only kidding, I like spiders!). The book is all I was hoping for, and more. It is a great collection of photographs of one of my favourite architectural eras, buy it, you won't be disapointed.

Worth every $ spent on it, you'll just keep turning page after page after page. Nicely put together without getting into dreadful details.

Good synthesis.
Alas, like quite every Taschen product, the French contents is awful.
It seems that the translation was made by an automate.
Most of the time, the old frenchy is forced to read the English text to understand what is printed.

This is such a beautifully put together book that really allows you to see the development of Shulman's work and to appreciate the growth of modern architecture and the field of architectural photography. It is really inspiring, a book to get lost in.
