julius shulman, 1910-2009

Julius Shulman, the most noted photographer of Mid Century Modernism in Los Angeles passed away at his home on Wednesday. He was 98. His pictures were soaring and iconic, and promoted the mid century style in addition to documenting it. His most famous photograph, seen here, was as much a love letter to Los Angeles as it was a picture of Case Study House 22.

I had met him several times in conjunction with LA Conservancy events and visited his steel home in the Hollywood Hills. He was a charming man. Rest in peace, Julius. Thank you for your labors.
