In 2005, LA’s pre-eminent architectural photographer, Julius Shulman, endowed a namesake institute at Woodbury University, its mission to promote “understanding and appreciation of photography of the built environment.”

To help further that effort, in 2010, the Julius Shulman Institute created its annual Excellence in Photography Award, with past honorees including Iwan Baan, Catherine Opie, and Grant Mudford.

This year’s recipient is Todd Eberle, the longtime Photographer at Large for Vanity Fair, whose work spans the worlds of art, architecture, politics, culture, and technology. In conjunction with the award, Woodbury University will also host an exhibition of Eberle’s photos in its Hollywood Outpost (WUHO).

Running from May 4 to June 25, the exhibit will showcase portraits of a host of architectural greats and cultural icons, including Julius Shulman, Philip Johnson, Florence Knoll Bassett, Donald Judd, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, and Rem Koolhaas.

The WUHO gallery is free and open to the public Thursday through Sunday.
