Julius Shulman was one of a handful of American architectural photographers who made a career of documenting the Mid-Century Look.
I know him best for his Case Study Houses (the hyper-famous #22 by Pierre Koenig, below) and other Southern California masterpieces. I had no idea he travelled to Brasília! In the disco seventies, no less.
The top photo, in particular, has a strength and dynamic perspective that does justice to Niemeyer’s National Congress Building.
