Archinect is reporting that famed architectural photographer Julius Shulman passed away. If you've ever seen the famous photos of the Case Study Houses, like the one at left of #22 by Pierre Koenig, then you've seen his work.
Taschen sells these huge, limited edition portfolio's of Shulman's work. They look lovely, but for those of us without a $7,000 budget for one, Amazon has a pretty good selection of books by, and about, Julius Shulman. I think I'd start with A Constructed View: The Architectural Photography of Julius Shulman. Looks lovely.
