Julius Shulman's rediscovered photos
These images taken by late photographer Julius Shulman show buildings from the USA's Mid-century Modern movement that "slipped from public view".
A prolific 20th-century architectural photographer, Shulman built up relationships with a number of Modernist architects – particularly California's Richard Neutra, John Lautner, R M Schindler and Gregory Ain.
His photos of their projects present both architectural features and the behaviour of their inhabitants. These pictures helped to shape the image of the Southern Californian lifestyle during the 1950s and 1960s, which spread to the rest of the country and the world.
A series of Shulman's photos uncovered from his personal archive were published as a book in 2000. Following his death in 2009, the set has been expanded into three volumes titled Julius Shulman: Modernism Rediscovered – available now from Taschen.
"Paying tribute to residential and commercial buildings that had slipped from public view, Shulman's stunning photographs uncovered a rarely seen side of California Modernism," said the publisher.
