Photograph by Julius Shulman


The Jonas Salk Institute, in La Jolla, California, was designed in 1960 by Louis Kahn. Julius Shulman's haunting image of this great building is given a considerable sense of narrative mystery by the single human figure, about to disappear around a bend at the top of a stairway. A rare image by one of the premier architectural photographers of the 20th century. This is an original Shulman print, printed during his lifetime, and under his supervision. Marked on the reverse with the photographer's stamp.
