The Visual Acoustics of Julius Schulman

Schulman was to mid century modernism as Whites Photography was to New Zealand landscapes.

No one better captured the dramatic forms and cool glamour of the mid-century modern era better than American photographer Julius Shulman. Schulman captured the creations of superstar architects and designers until he passed away, aged 98, in 2009. His library of images documents a client list including Charles and Ray Eames, Pierre Koenig, John Lautner, Richard Neutra and Frank Lloyd Wright, to mention just a few. Not just a lackey with a camera, Schulman was at the forefront of the modernist movement and the first to show the world iconic designs from names such as Eames and Neutra. He also enabled the popularisation of Californian mid-century modernism. It's rare and impressive that a photographer is seen to match the architects at the cutting edge of a new style. The film "Visual Acoustics" shows off his work to international acclaim. Let us know if you've seen it and where we can get our hands on a copy!
