“We are born and live our entire lives in architecture — yet we ignore so much of it,” said artist, curator, author and film producer Michael Stern. “I want to reveal the language of architecture to the layman, and make it accessible to everyone.”

Stern co-authored the Rizzoli book, Julius Shulman: Palm Springs, and directed a companion documentary about desert-modern architecture. The documentary is a must-see for anyone who’s ever been, or will be going, to Palm Springs.

The book and documentary feature a selection of stills by the iconic architectural photographer Shulman, who died in 2009 at age 98. Stern's book focuses exclusively on Shulman’s photos of modernist properties in Palm Springs, and it is organized in order of the 15 architects who designed the properties. More than 60 buildings are presented, many owned by celebrities.

Stern will also discuss Shulman's work in Claremont including many of the images in "Claremont Modernism".
