Metropolis was saddened to learn this afternoon that the legendary architectural photographer Julius Shulman passed away last night, just a few months shy of his 99th birthday. We’ll be posting more about Shulman’s astonishing career in the coming days. In the meantime, we thought readers would like to revisit Paul Makovsky’s 2007 story, “The Photographic Memory of Julius Shulman,” in which the photographer discusses the genesis of some of his most remarkable images. You can also view the photos and read Shulman’s commentary in a slide-show format by clicking the image above.
