Woodbury University, Sunday, October 11, 2009. The award was presented by LILY TOMLIN, who received the award in 2007. Bricker devoted seven years of his life to making the film, "VISUAL ACOUSTICS: The Modernism of Julius Shulman". The film documents the great photographer and how his images portrayed and promoted the idealistic "California Lifestyle". I was deeply honored to be one of the presenters at the ceremony, along with Michael Stern and Jonathan Weedman.
The beloved photographer died in July 2009, just a few months short of his 99th birthday (10-10-1910). Pictured are members of the cast and crew, including Shulman's daughter Judy McKee (on the left) and Julius Shulman standing with Eric Bricker on the far right. The photo was taken earlier at the Landmark Theater at an early showing of the film.
