Palm Springs’ Midcentury Up to date architecture, the people who designed it, and the people who live in it.
Palm Springs is as much a showcase for its unparalleled selection of Midcentury Up to date architecture as it’s for the unique people that designed and inhabit that architecture. With Palm Springs Up to date Living, photographer James Schnepf has created a lovely selection of photographs that document both the iconic architecture and fascinating people of this desert oasis. More than fifty modernists, artists, builders, and architects were interviewed, including such Midcentury Up to date luminaries as Donald Wexler, William Krisel, and Hugh Kaptur, and their stories and anecdotes provide a really perfect complement to Schnepf’s vivid photography. Together, they be capable of bring Palm Springs to life in a way that most volumes of architectural photos could never hope to reach.
James Schnepf is a location photographer with an emphasis on people. He has photographed for a long list of The united states’s leading corporations and publications, and these assignments have taken him to all parts of the world. In his travels he has all the time kept an eye open for a climate and community to balance the cold winters of his circle of relatives’s Midwest base. He and his wife, Christiane, found that place in California’s Coachella Valley, where they own a 1959 William Krisel–designed home.
