Get Inspired

Just saw this movie last night, Visual Acoustics, and I really enjoyed it. It follows the career of Julius Schulman, a photograher of modernist architecture. From "retro" houses in Palm Springs, to outlandish houses on the L.A. hillsides, it is inspiring to learn about the movement and the amazing man who documented it all. It will make you look at things with a new appreciation for design and form. Here is a summary and to go along with the film, check out the lines on this Biviel bootie. Style 2750 $165

Visual Acoustics celebrates the life and career of Julius Shulman, the world's greatest architectural photographer, whose images brought modern architecture to the American mainstream. Shulman, who passed away('08) this year, captured the work of nearly every modern and progressive architect since the 1930s including Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, John Lautner and Frank Gehry. His images epitomized the singular beauty of Southern California's modernist movement and brought its iconic structures to the attention of the general public. This unique film is both a testament to the evolution of modern architecture and a joyful portrait of the magnetic, whip-smart gentleman who chronicled it with his unforgettable images.
