Modernism RediscoveredWell, I'll never convince 'the husband' but I've found my new dream book.
I was browsing through flickr and came across a gorgeous black and white photo of children playing outside a gorgeous mid century home.
A few things stood out to me.
I LOVE the bike and other period toys scattered around.
The early evening lighting lends a certain atmosphere to the picture. It reminds me of playing outside as the sun went down, not wanting to come inside.
Then I look closer and see a girl playing with her pram inside. I notice that one of the boys is absorbed in a book. Wonderful.
I noticed it was taken from a book called Modernism Rediscovered by Julius Shulman and there were a few more images from the book on ouno's photostream - just as (or almost as) wonderful. "I want this book" I said to myself and popped on over to amazon uk to find it comes in three lovely hard back books at the cost a mere £199.99 (marked down from £200 - bargain).
As much as I love books, I can't really justify spending that much. But I added it to my wish list. Oh, yes I did.
As I researched Julius Shulman, who is, it turns out, a very well known architectural photographer, I then came across this photograph (on CORSIWORLD's photostream) which made me gasp...
