Curated by Bilyana Dimitrova, The Julius Shulman Institute at Woodbury University exhibition features individual artists who are often hidden behind the projects that they document, including: Peter Aaron, Bilyana Dimitrova, Joe Fletcher, Timothy Hursley, Alan Karchmer, Jon Miller, Tim Street-Porter, Undine Pröhl, Lara Swimmer and Paul Warchol.
"Beyond the Assignment: Defining Photographs of Architecture and Design examines the work of ten of today’s leading architectural photographers in the United States. By expertly documenting and artfully interpreting the built environment, these artists provide a critical contribution to the history of photography, mass media, and the architecture profession. Beyond the Assignment takes a long-overdue look at the way architectural photographers use visual storytelling, technical precision, and a unique visual sensibility to shape the way we see the built environment. In so doing, these photographers move “beyond the assignment” and help immortalize today’s architecture and design." Click here to see more information.
