Julius Shulman Institute

The Julius Shulman Institute (JSI) celebrates groundbreaking photography of the built environment. Our annual Excellence in Photography Award is given to a photographer who honors Shulman’s legacy by challenging the way we look at physical space. Awardees include Iwan Baan (2010), Catherine Opie (2013), and James Welling (2016). Julius Shulman’s groundbreaking skill as an architectural photographer helped create an audience for California modernism around the world. The Institute hosts and curates critically acclaimed design and architecture exhibitions as well as the annual award exhibit at WUHO.
