Julius Shulman, the legendary photographer for homes and buildings during the mid-century modern movements has died. Shulman died Wednesday night. Shulman was 98.

According to the LA TImes, “Shulman had been in declining health, and died at his home in Los Angeles, according to Craig Krull, who represented him.”

Coming out blazing in 1936, Shulman started with Richard Neutra and his other clients included a “Who’s Who” in contemporary architecture: Rudolf M. Schindler, Gregory Ain, Frank Lloyd Wright, Raphael S. Soriano, John Lautner, Eero Saarinen, Albert Frey, Pierre Koenig, Harwell Harris, and a ton of others. As a testament to his importance in the modern movements, his work can be found in virtually even book published on Modern architects.
