Julius Shulman’s Visual Acoustics

I’m very much looking forward to Visual Acoustics, the 7-years-in-the-making documentary on Julius Shulman.  As today’s NYT says:

Julius Shulman, the prolific architectural photographer who died in July at 98, benefited in equal measure from talent and timing.  He was, of course, a gifted, inventive photographer; his introduction of real people into architectural images is considered groundbreaking.  But he also lived and worked in midcentury Los Angeles, an epicenter of Modernism and a canvas for architects like Richard Neutra, Pierre Koenig and John Lautner, whose landmark houses Mr. Shulman captured.

Since he was based primarily in Los Angeles, expect to see glorious photographs of buildings that no longer remain.
