portrait of a modern metropolis. Read full description. See details and exclusions.

The renowned architectural photographer shares four crucial decades' worth of images of the city he loved, celebrated, and made iconic. With a life and career spanning nearly a century, Julius Shulman is credited with furthering the midcentury modernism movement through his flawless photographs of the pioneering architecture of Richard Neutra and Charles Eames, among others. While Shulman's pictures comprise the most published images of the modernist movement, this new monograph presents many never-before-seen images on a subject closest to Shulman's heart: Los Angeles and its environs--including Palm Springs and other suburbs. These affecting photographs show Los Angeles as a living organism, simultaneously vibrant and volatile depending on the neighborhood. This tension is apparent in Shulman's documentation of then-emerging areas like Century City, Wilshire Boulevard, and Echo Park, as well as his studies of landmarks like the Watts Towers and Grauman's Chinese Theatre. Many of the Los Angeles buildings and neighborhoods photographed by Shulman have since been overhauled, torn down, or otherwise altered beyond recognition, making these images some of the only lasting testaments to their existence. Selected from his personal collection as well as his official archives, the photographs included in this book represent not only lesser-known and never-before-seen material, but also some of Shulman's own personal favorites.

An excellent book of mid century Los Angeles architectural photography from the master photographer. The book arrived well packed but the cover was damaged. I should have reported it but didn't.

Beautifully designed book with Shulman's gorgeous photos.

This may very well be the best Los Angeles photography book i've ever come across and i've seen many of them. Julius Shulman's images of LA modernism are well known, but now we can also see his photographs of LA's other styles of architecture like Beax Arts, Art Deco, etc. I will have to disagree with the "product description", however. One of the best things about this book for me is that the majority of the buildings shown here are still standing.

Beautiful book. I've always loved Shulman's photos, and this doesn't disappoint. Not only are there some of the usual hits from his more familiar Modernist work, but he captures the budding years of Los Angeles perfectly. For those who love history as well as stunning visuals, buy this book.

Julius Schulman was one of the most prolific and talented photographers of his time focusing most of his career on architectural photography. Many of his photographs are iconic and capture a Los Angeles that in many cases no longer exists in the same form that it once did. He truly grew up with the city and in his photographs capured the metamorphasis that it underwent. Many of his photographs are like pieces of art; to be looked at and appreciated for their composition as well as what they are taken of. The only negative thing I can say about this book, and it is the reason for me not giving it a five star rating is the paper that was sed in the book. I may be nit picking but it is so easy to mar a dark photograph with any residue of any kind on your fingers even when washed thoroughly. It's like you have to view this book with gloves to preserve the beauty of the book itself and that shouldn't be the case. I have never experienced this with a book before and was especially iritated with this given the cost of the book.

I want to love this book. Really I do. I'm actually an architectural photographer and I live in L.A. But this edition is so small that the text is far too difficult to read and the book somehow loses the impact you want out of a coffee table book. This is simply a miniaturized version of the full sized copy with everything shrunk down without regard for the impact or readability of the book as a whole. Hold out for the larger, older version if you can locate a copy.
I never knew LA could look so good. This book is a must for people who enjoy see a city when it was at its high point.
