Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman


Visual Acoustics is a documentary film by Eric Bricker that explores the career of the extraordinary architectural photographer, Julius Shulman. His aesthetics, composition and style create timeless photographs that epitomize modern architecture. Shulman is easily one of my favorite photographers.

Unfortunately there isn’t a good online gallery of his complete work, you have to do some searching to find most of it. But there is an amazing book set titled Julius Shulman, Modernism Rediscovered that catalogues his personal archives. Gotta get my hands on a copy.

The film is being screened in limited cities, one of which isn’t NYC, which I don’t understand. Shulman himself will be speaking at some of the screenings and if you’re lucky enough to be in one of these cities, definitely check it out. It’s should be a good one.

    Antonio, you are determined to make my favourite blog aren’t you?

    Where else would greet you with minimalist type design and Pierre Koenig buildings?


  • Michael, glad you enjoy the site. Thanks for reading!

  • Beautiful photo. Looks so much like the house in Hitchcock’s North By Northwest.
