"...the publisher's fourth on the photographer and arguable its best, if only because Shulman did his most memorable work in the city. As a documentarian of modernism, specifically the work of Richard Neutra and Charles Eames, Shulman is unsurpassed, but while many of these pictures are now classics, another side of his work has been mostly overlooked. That would be the street scenes, the night photography, and the portraits that document a place not serene, clean, and beautiful, but bustling and fraught with tension-the city Shulman lived and breathed his entire life." ~Nylon for Guys
"These photographic works show Los Angeles as a living organism both vibrant and volatile depending on the neighborhood..." ~Sartorial Life
"Now you can see the Central City of the 1930s, '40s and 50s through a pair of the most discerning eyes to ever get behind the lens-Julius Shulman." ~Los Angeles Downtown News
"Julius Shulman: Los Angeles: The Birth of A Modern Metropolis by Sam Lubell and Douglas Woods, presents the late, great photographer's images of his city, many of them never published before." ~Chicago Tribune
"Although we all miss our "Uncle Julius," the publication of this new volume
definitely begs the question: do we really need yet another book? Julius
Shulman Los Angeles answers the question with a resounding YES...To
paraphrase Paul Cezanne's famous comment about Claude Monet:
Shulman was only an eye-but what an eye!" ~Society of Architectural Historians
