Overview

For years, journalists have pontificated at length on the importance of modernist architecture in contemporary society, even dissecting its angles, proportions, and overall aesthetics. But what of the visual artists responsible for bringing views of this architecture to the mass public? Time and again, architecture photographer Julius Shulman perfected this unusual and highly specialized art form, defining not modernist architecture per se (he left that up to the designers) but how the overall public perceives modernist architecture. Utilizing a pronounced visual style, this program joins Shulman on a cross-country journey to many of the structures he immortalized with his camera, complemented by the artist's rich and detailed recollections of his work.
