Publisher's Description

Marvin Rand's newly discovered, vintage images capture the style and mythology of Mid-Century Modern California architecture

Los Angeles photographer Marvin Rand created iconic images of some of the most celebrated architectural creations of his time, photographing buildings by the likes of Modernist masters Craig Ellwood, Louis Kahn, and Frank Lloyd Wright to capture the essence of their work — and, in doing so, played a critical role in shaping the Mid-Century California style now worshiped the world over. The discovery of Rand's archive has brought a treasure trove to life, and California Captured showcases it — and the period — as never before.

“[Marvin Rand's] archive of some 50,000 images was discovered in 2012 and provides us with an extraordinary insight into mid-century modernist architecture and interiors... Clearly not a great self-publicist, Rand's name never became as famous as the architects he promoted, but these pictures, largely black-and-white, deserve the respect and esteem that has been, until now, missing.” — Black & White Photography Magazine
