On Friday, April 15, we'll be toasting Architect's Newspaper editor (and self-professed de LaB groupie) Sam Lubell on the publication of his new book, Julius Shulman Los Angeles: The Birth of a Modern Metropolis at the Julius Shulman Institute at Woodbury University.
This beautiful book is one of the most unique collections of Shulman's photography. Sam spent a year digging through Shulman's Getty archive to find unpublished and unknown photos, so these are not the typical shots you associate with Shulman's work. Many were taken for his advertising and developer clients, and, together with some of his more iconic pieces, they paint a remarkable picture of a changing Los Angeles.
A panel discussion will feature Sam and his co-author Douglas Woods, Shulman's daughter Judy McKee, gallerist Craig Krull, and the Getty Research Institute's Anne Blecksmith, all moderated by architectural historian Alan Hess.
Afterwards, Sam will be signing books and has promised to save one copy for a lucky de LaB attendee who can answer his toughest trivia question about Shulman.
