Julius Shulman's long career photographing great architectural works with depth, passion, drama, and an instinct for the architect's intentions has ensured his present status as one of the world's preeminent architectural photographers. His eloquent photos interpreting the structures of Richard Neutra and other early modernists helped the viewing public to understand these revolutionary buildings, and brought prominence to modernist practitioners who might otherwise have been considered eccentric. Frank Lloyd Wright once said that no better photos had ever been taken of Taliesin West than those by Shulman.Photographing Architecture and Interiors, published in 1962, is Shulman's first book, and he still considers it to be his most genuine reflection on the profession and on his own artistic philosophy. This title is an exact reprint of that now-classic publication. All of Shulman's famous photographs have here been reproduced from original prints, giving the images a crispness and luminosity not seen even in the 1962 edition. The introduction by Richard Neutra, perhaps Shulman's most important client and avid supporter, has been preserved; also included is a new foreword by Shulman himself.

As far as coffee table books go this is an excellent demonstration. This compilation of architectural photography of Julius Shulman allows the viewer a wonderful taste of modern structures. The book contains various homes by Mies Van der Rohe (1886-1969) and the like, with specific focus on homes by Richard Neutra (1892-1970). Beautiful black & white photography with a smattering of colour work,illustrating to the reader a fine,but not in-depth, view of modern homes and interiors. The oversized book allows the viewer/reader to delve into the photography which is large and very well printed. Clear and beautiful photographs along with moderate commentary allows the viewer/reader easy access into a world seldom seen and often misunderstood. Most of the homes contained within are still standing, either functioning as actual residences or as examples of the architects and designers work. This is a wonderful example for any enthusiasts of design and architecture And is well worth the price.
