Grant Mudford is the 2014 winner of the Julius Shulman Award for Excellence in Photography. To celebrate the Australian photographer's prolific body of work—which ranges from architectural to abstract photography—Woodbury University's WUHO gallery is hosting an exhibition called Grant Mudford: Building from April 3 to 27.
