Inspire Me Monday: Photography by Ben Schnall

Architectural photographer Ben Schnall wasn’t exactly a living legend like contemporary Julius Shulman, but his work was no less spectacular. Most known for his captures of Marcel Breuer’s designs, Schnall also worked for various magazines such as Life and House and Garden. May your Monday be inspired by the images below, captured by the great and oft-overlooked Ben Schnall.

Magnificent Architectural Photography by Pedro E. Guerrero

Architecture in and of itself is an admirable vocation, but it is photography that makes its greatness known to the world. Julius Shulman, of course, has received much acclaim for his architectural photography, but many other magnificent photographers have not received the same deserved recognition for work in the fields of art and architecture. One such photographer is Pedro E. Guerrero, whose photography immortalized the work of greats such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Alexander Calder. Here is a small fraction of his breathtaking portfolio.

Tomorrow: Opening Ceremony for Grant Mudford, Building by the Julius Shulman Institute

Grant Mudford is the 2014 recipient of the Julius Shulman Institute Excellence in Photography Award, which will be presented at an opening and awards ceremony tomorrow night, Thursday, April 3. The public reception will commence a three-week-long exhibition that celebrates the Australian’s illustrious photography career.

According to the Institute, “Grant Mudford deconstructs the elemental components of architecture, transforming the rebar, concrete and stucco of ordinary building sites into poignant statements about frailty and strength.”

The ceremony and exhibition will be held at the WUHO Gallery in Los Angeles at 6pm. See a sneak peek of the work below., and find out more on the Institute website.
