Documenting Los Angeles' preeminent architectural photographer

Visual Acoustics is a tribute to a great artist, a world-renowned photographer who managed to define Los Angeles architecture through his lens. Directed by Eric Bricker and narrated by actor Dustin Hoffman, the documentary film follows the career of one of the most famous architectural photographers of all time, Julius Shulman. Working with such upper echelon architects as Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra and John Lautner, Shulman is responsible for making their work available to public — and in many ways helping launch their careers. Eric Bricker first meet the photographer in 1999, and claims his friendship with Shulman throughout the years influenced and impacted him more so than most people he has ever known. With his iconic photographs having graced over 800 archive covers, and with 11 books dedicated to his work, this film shows the great influence Schulman has had on Bricker and many others throughout his life time. Winning the the Audience Award for Best Documentary for both the Mercedes-Benz and Austin Film Festival as well as the Grand Prize for Best Documentary at the Lone Starr International Film Festival, Visual Acoustics is an ode to an unsung artist who brought modern architecture into every home.
