When I am not working in New York or Arizona, it seems I spend a lot of time in Los Angeles.  I love the beach in Santa Monica and the museums are fabulous! One of my favorite museums in the world is the Getty Museum.  First of all, the architecture and the landscaping is enough to go and see in and of itself!

The art, is spectacular!

The first time I saw works by JULIUS SHULMAN  was at The Getty.  Since then I have become such a fan, that on my pursuit of bringing you the best of everything related to art, I am bringing you him!

I love the documentation of the architecture, and for those of you who are familiar with Palm Springs and Palm desert, you will certainly then recognize some of the architecture.




For 70 years, Shulman steadily created one of the most comprehensive visual chronologies of modern architecture and the development of the Los Angeles region. The prints in the exhibition are selected from a portfolio of more than 70,000 images.

Julius Shulman is renowned for some of the

most iconic photographs in architectural history. His images seem to reveal the essence of an architect’s vision and capture the spirit of the eras in which they were produced.

Under the experimental Case Study House Program, architects were commissioned to design innovative single-family homes in California. Shulman photographed the majority of the Case Study projects, such as the one above, free of charge

Julius Shulman’s photographs of Southern California’s inventive modern homes promoted the careers of numerous visionary architects including Richard Neutra, John Lautner, and Pierre Koenig. Mid-20th-century homes come alive through

Shulman’s compositions of carefully posed models set against streamlined furnishings and breathtaking vistas.

Shulman’s widely published images marketed the West Coast’s casual residential elegance to the world. Decades after the initial prints were created, Shulman’s scenes continue to

herald the beauty and livability of modern architecture and the glamour of the California dream.

Julius Shulman’s intuitive timing and distinctive camera angles produced bold portraits of hundreds of modern structures beyond Los Angeles. Through Shulman’s lens, buildings become unique studies of mass, shadow, and light. In this image, Shulman’s perspective captures the dynamic lines of a suspended spiral ramp in San Diego.

While global demands for his talent allowed Shulman to travel extensively, Los Angeles has always been his home. The thousands of photographs he has taken of the city now serve as significant visual records of the unique urban fabric of Los Angeles. Poetic images of subjects not normally associated

with Shulman, such as streetscapes, movie palaces, factories, and bustling markets, highlight the energy and style of a metropolis that continues to define itself.

Have a great day! Happy thoughts! Jamie
