It’s impossible to escape the work of photographer Julius Shulman when thinking about Palm Springs as many of the iconic images associated with the place were taken by him. Shulman captured the work of the most significant US modern architects including Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, John Lautner and Frank Gehry. Palm Springs was of course a constant source of inspiration to him and his photographs played a major role bringing Palm Springs to the world. Visual Acoustics¬†is lovely documentary that retraces his fascinating life and recounts the story of how some of his unforgettable images were created.

Visual Acoustics is directed by Eric Bricker and narrated by Dustin Hoffman.
