Happy 97th Julius Shulman

32972572.jpg

We don’t usually cover birthdays here on UnBeige (well, maybe sometimes) but we can’t let today go by without wishing a very happy birthday to one Julius Shulman, born on the magic longevity-blessed date of 10/10/10. The photo of him above was taken by an assistant in 1954 (and oddly, listed without credit on LATimes.com)

Lately it seems every October 10 is the official time to celebrate modernist architecture, Los Angeles and black and white photography, so this year Shulman’s cake will be served alongside an exhibition of photographs at the LA Public Library, “Shulman’s Los Angeles,” a birthday party at Pentagram next week, and a gigantic three-volume, 1008-page catalog by Taschen named Julius Shulman Modernism Rediscovered. Paul Makovsky of Metropolis visited Shulman in his studio recently, where our legendary national treasure is most certainly still snapping.
