Advance Notice: Visual Acoustics

The 20th annual New Orleans Film Festival schedule will be announced on September 16th, but we have advance notice that its line-up will include the Eric Bricker documentary, Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman.

Julius Shulman (1910-2009) was a leading architectural photographer who remained active until his death this past summer. His imagery idealized the southern California lifestyle and the modernist architecture of Richard Neutra, John Lautner and Frank Lloyd Wright. His personal archive of some 1/4 million items is currently being processed at the Getty.
