Voted an honorary fellow by the AIA and recipient of its gold medal for architectural photography, Julius Shulman enjoyed the international esteem of a new generation eager for images of the past to inform present and future. In capturing the vision of so many others, Shulman's eye has ultimately defined his own vision, which remains as keen and singular as the man himself./Ester McCoy, Los Angeles, 1989

The exhibition at the Julius Shulman Institute focuses on 10 photographers whose work illuminates a range of explorations into documenting the experience of space. What does the building feel like? What kind of light and shadow does it embrace and cast? How are buildings etched into our memory in a visceral way?

Take one picture. But be sure that picture encompasses everything you see, hear, and feel./Julius Shulman

Nothing is ever quite objective through an individual's eye, but is on some level an emotional response and reaction. All that is built or demolished shapes not only the physical landscape, but the human experience as well. Large and small, architecture seeps into a person's being in a profoundly intimate way.
