Julius Shulman

Julius Shulman was an architectural photographer who turned photos of Modernist buildings into works of art. Shulman had more than 260,000 images in his archive when it was purchased by the Getty Center in 1995. His photos at one time sold for less than $50 each but in later years were considered art and brought between $2,000 and $20,000. His most famous work was “Case Study House No. 22” a black and white photo of a glass-and-steel frame home built by architect Pierre Koenig in the Hollywood Hills in the ‘50s.
