RIP Photographer Julius Schulman

Photographer Julius Shulman, whose images of California's modernist architecture drew worldwide admiration for the minimalist mid-century style, had died at the age of 98.

The man many consider to be the finest architectural photographer in history died on Wednesday night at his Laurel Canyon home, said gallery owner Craig Krull, who recently opened an exhibition of Shulman's latest work.

Shulman's most famous image was a 1960 photo titled Case House Study #22, in which two women sit in a glass house seemingly suspended in mid-air with the lights of Los Angeles twinkling below.
