ABOUT THE EVENT
Across seven decades, widely acclaimed architectural photographer Julius Shulman captured a trajectory of growth and modernity as San Diego County’s built environment matured. This presentation draws from nearly two decades of research documenting over 200 projects by Shulman across San Diego County, photographed between 1934-2007, and connects the resources of an Diego Downtown Library, La Jolla Historical Society and the Getty Research Institute. Additionally, it weaves together interviews and time spent with Julius Shulman in his studio in the early 2000s.
