Visual Acoustics The Modernism of Julius Shulman Film

I happened to find the photography works of Julius Shulman wondering the internet of the world. I was fascinated by his work and his use of different angles, styles, and lighting that he used to capture his images. So while I was doing some research I found that he has a movie about how his works have coined today's view of modern architecture, many of his photographs became iconic shots. Especially famous are his photographs of Californian modernism, buildings by Richard Neutra, Frank Lloyd Wright, Pierre Koenig, and Charles Eames.

Shulman, who passed away this year, captured the work of nearly every modern and progressive architect since the 1930's. This unique film is both a testament to the evolution of modern architecture and a joyful portrait of the magnetic, whip-smart gentleman who chronicled it with his unforgettable images. The movie came out October 2009 and was narrated by Dustin Hoffman. I rather enjoyed watching the trailer to Visual Acoustics and enjoyed his photography. Therefore, my hat goes off to you Julius Shulman.
