Well, I’ve got twenty years yet to figure out what I’ll do at sixty-five but lest I jump to conclusions in comes the story of Julius Shulman, architectural photographer. Julius is ninety-eight and even if you have never heard of him you know his work. It’s embedded in the culture and it still exerts a strong influence in the collective vision of Los Angeles and in fictional worlds such as Tony Stark’s house in the movie, Iron Man.
Susan Stamberg of National Public Radio has a great story on Julius which ran this morning and NPR also has a gallery of Julius’ work. Be sure to expand the gallery to full-screen.
In case you are wondering what to do at ninety-eight, you can photograph houses at $6k a pop.
