Product description

This title presents a pictorial history of the "City of the Future" throughout the 20th century. The celebrated architectural photographer Julius Shulman (1910-2009) is one of the few image makers to have documented, as well as witnessed, nearly an entire century of Los Angeles history. His captivating photographs serve as a visual record of the dramatic evolution of this diverse metropolis. Shulman's best-known images consist of mid-century views of Modernist domestic interiors, notably the iconic Case Study House Number 22 of 1960. Not as well known but equally powerful are Shulman's images of Union Station and downtown's vintage office buildings, the region's eclectic coffee shops and movie theatres, and the panoramic vistas of the "City of the Future" under construction. This volume presents 60 stunning images and an informative essay exploring Shulman's exceptional talent.
