In addition to being one of the most recognized places in the world for its long association with celebrities (many of whom live here), Malibu's strikingly beautiful coastline contains a greater concentration of world-class residential architecture than perhaps any other city in the United States, if not the world. This gorgeous book offers a behind-the-scenes view of the most exciting houses built here since 1894, by John Lautner, Richard Meier, and Frank Gehry, among others, presented decade by decade by legendary architectural photographer Julius Shulman and his colleague Juergen Nogai.
Shulman, now 94 years old, first came to Malibu in 1929 and, armed with a Vest-Pocket Kodak, started taking pictures of the landscape and wildlife. He continued to visit for the next 75 years, and his personal archive of pictures from those years, a guided tour of houses that, for the most part, have never been shown to the public, forms the heart of this book. Hollywood historian and best-selling author David Wallace contributes an introductory walk through the history of Malibu and its inseparable relationship with Hollywood glamour.
Julius Shulman is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential architectural photographers in history. He began his career in 1936 as photographer to Modern master Richard Neutra, before going on to work in a similar capacity with other leading Modernists, including Charles and Ray Eames, Albert Frey, John Lautner, Rudolf Schindler, Pierre Koenig, Craig Ellwood, and Gregory Ain. Shulman's photographs are in many instances more iconic than the actual building they portray. An honorary member of the American Institute of Architects, he is the recipient of numerous awards and honours, including a lifetime achievement award from the International Center of Photography and the 2003 Interior Design Hall of Fame Award. David Wallace is the author of the best-selling Lost Hollywood (2000) and Hollywoodland, both of which are anecdote-driven, popular histories of the golden age of the film capital, its built environment, and personalities.
