Overview

Julius Shulman (1910–2009), one of the foremost architectural photographers of our day, achieved international acclaim with his pictures of the architecture of the postwar and Kennedy eras. Shulman not only set standards in modern architectural photography, working with the preeminent architects of his time, he also defined a completely new style of architectural photography. Shulman elevates architectural photography above the slavish illustration of architectural history to become a pictorial medium in its own right, with far-reaching functions going beyond representation.

German born photographer Jürgen Nogai and Julius Shulman began a rewarding collaboration in 2000 which lasted almost a decade until Shulman's death in 2009. Together they continued to develop their unique style, worked on projects, and published in books and magazines. Nogai’s work is part of the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Palm Springs Art Museum and Deutsches Architektur Museum, the Frankfurt Design and Architecture Museum, Germany.

This publication is released on the occasion of Julius Shulman’s one hundredth birthday and presents works from the joint archive of Shulman and Nogai resulting from their ten year partnership, many of them published for the first time in a book.

Meet the Author


Julius Shulman (Brooklyn, October 10, 1910 – Los Angeles, July 15, 2009) was an American architectural photographer best known for his photograph Case Study House #22, Los Angeles, 1960, Pierre Koenig, Architect. Some of his architectural photographs, like the iconic shots of Frank Lloyd Wright's or Pierre Koenig's remarkable structures, have been published countless times. The brilliance of buildings like those by Charles Eames, as well as those of his close friend, Richard Neutra, was first brought to light by Shulman's photography. The clarity of his work demanded that architectural photography had to be considered as an independent art form.
In 2000 Julius Shulman gave up retirement to begin working with business partner Juergen Nogai.us Shulman and Juergen Nogai have had exhibitions at the Design and Architecture Museum in Frankfurt, Germany, in fall 2005 as well as an exhibition at the Barnsdall Municipal Gallery in Los Angeles 2006, Craig Krull Gallery Bergamont station, Los Angeles, October 2007, and another show in spring 2009.

Juergen Nogai, born 1953 in Jessen/Elster, near Berlin, is a German architecture, art and documentary photographer. He studied Fine Arts, Film, Theatre and Television Science, and German Language at the University of Cologne, Germany. Later he taught German Language and Fine Arts, concurrently with his career as a free-lance photographer. In 2000 he re-located to Los Angeles and began working on numerous book projects. It was during this period that Juergen began his decade long collaboration with renowned architectural photographer Julius Shulman. They have had numerous gallery and museum exhibitions of their work and Juergen is represented by Craig Krull Gallery, in Los Angeles.
