Iconic architectural photographer responsible for creating a vision of a progressive, modern America, has died.
Shulman was no stranger to Oklahoma. He photographed the states goundbreaking modern architecture from the early 50’s all the way through the 70’s. Recently the Oklahoma City Museum of Art featured a retrospective of the master’s photography entitled Oklahoma Modernism Rediscovered.
In Tulsa Shulman’s photography was instrumental in the work of local modernism icons MurrayJones Murray, photographing the Civic Center, The Tulsa International Airport, Tulsa University’s Sigma Nu house, the Robert Lawton Jones residence, St. Peter and Paul church and many more.
Shulman was an important connection between Tulsa and Modern Architecture, showing people nationwide that good design wasn’t merely reserved for New York or L.A., but that there was thought provoking, progressive modern architecture happening across the country….even in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
