Julius Shulman, The Building of My Home and Studio
Julius Shulman, born in Brooklyn in 1910, has for decades been recognized as the pre-eminent photographer of mid-century architecture.
Shulman’s own home and adjoining studio in Hollywood’s Laurel Canyon were designed in 1949 by Raphael Soriano, and serve as the subject of this gorgeous new artist’s book. Shulman photographed the land he had purchased for his home in the early 1940s, as well as the construction which ensued. His set of master prints of this project, spiral-bound into an album, have been kept on his studio shelves for the past 60 years.
This book offers a limited edition facsimile of this important body of work, which provides insight into Shulman’s early working methods, and his unique ability to capture not only the aesthetic, but also the emotional, intention of designs.
