"Julius Shulman, Modernity and the Metropolis," at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, marks the museum's acquisition of this photographer's massive archive: 260,000 negatives, prints, and transparencies that essentially document the development of postwar Southern California architecture, capturing work by Rudolf Schindler, Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles and Ray Eames, and Richard Neutra. Among this exhibit's 83 photographs are images of Wright's Ennis House, a Mobil station in Disneyland by Smith and Williams, John Lautner's Chemosphere, and, naturally, the iconic shot of Pierre Koenig's Case Study House 22—the nighttime view that changed the course of modernism.
