Julius Shulman (1910 – 2009), one of the foremost architectural photographers of our day, achieved international acclaim with his pictures of the architecture of the postwar and Kennedy eras. Shulman not only set standards in modern architectural photography, working with the pre-eminent architects of his time; he also defined a completely new style of architectural photography. Architectural photography is elevated above the slavish illustration of architectural history to become a pictorial medium in its own right, with far-reaching functions going beyond representation.
German born photographer Jürgen Nogai (*1953) and Julius Shulman began a rewarding collaboration in 2000 which lasted almost a decade until the death of Shulman in 2009. Together they continued to develop their unique style, worked on projects and published in books and magazines.
This publication is released on the occasion of Julius Shulman’s 100th birthday, and presents works from the joint archive of Shulman and Nogai resulting from their ten year partnership, many of them published for the first time in a book.
