Having seen Amir Bar-Lev’s other work including The Pat Tillman Story, I was compelled to finally check out My Kid Could Paint That.  The title of the documentary was interesting to me, even when all I knew about it was something about Marla Olmstead being a kid who paints similarly to Jackson Pollack.

Documentary review: architectural photographer Julius Shulman

Case Study House #22 is perhaps the most iconic and famous of Julius Shulman’s photographs and it is one of the many subjects in the documentary Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman.

The film is quite educational and many iconic buildings that Shulman photographed are described with details on his creative process as well as what went into particular shots.

What’s interesting […]
