If you are a fan of modern architecture or architectural photography chances are good you have heard of, or at least seen, Julius Shulman’s work.  Shulman was an architectural photographer who documented the growth of Los Angeles predominantly in the 1950’s and 60’s.  One of his most well known photographs is of the Case Study House #22 (aka the Stahl House).  But that was just one of thousands of images Shulman took of the architecture of LA.  And now those black and white photographs have inspired New York artist Amy Park.  She has taken several of Shulman’s photographs and reproduced them in large scale color with watercolor.

Park’s Shulman inspired watercolors will be on exhibit at the Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles through July 7th.

For more information on Julius Shulman’s work try the documentary “Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman.”  There are also a lot of great books featuring his work such as:
