Abstract:

With a life and career spanning nearly a century, Julius Shulman is credited with furthering the Mid-Century Modern movement through his flawless photographs of the pioneering architecture of Richard Neutra and Charles Eames, among others. While Shulman's pictures comprise the most recognizable images of Southern California Modernism, this monograph presents many never before seen views of Los Angeles and it's environs, from a rural Canoga Park to new Palm Springs. This book documents the rise of Wilshire Boulevard and the emerging Century City, as well as landmarks, from Sid Grauman's Chinese Theatre to The Watts Towers. Many of these Los Angeles buildings and neighborhoods have since been overhauled, torn down, or otherwise altered beyond recognition, making these images lasting testaments to their existence. Selected from his personal collection as well as his official archives, the photographs represent not only lesser-known and never-before-seen material, but also some of Shulman's own personal favorites.
