    Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman

    Narrated by Dustin Hoffman, "Visual Acoustics" is a documentary film that explores the life and career of the architectural photographer Julius Shulman, who died at age 98 in 2009. Shulman was widely considered to be the world’s greatest and most well-known architectural photographer. The film highlights his iconic photos which were frequently populated with human models and striking landscapes, often combining the organic with the synthetic and melding nature with contemporary design. The film highlights how these images shaped the careers of some of the great architects of the 20th Century, notably Richard Neutra, John Lautner and the Case Study Architects. His iconic image of Case Study House #22 (shown) is one of the most well-known and widely distributed photographs of Modernist architecture.
