a really great historical document, beautifully saturated colours, Herzog has a stunning eye for painterly images and a very well designed book too. Well printed.

I didn't know Fred Herzog, even the name. But when I opened the book, I immediately realised that he was a great one, one of those photographers that made a new step in photography. It is a little bit a mixture between the America of Robert Frank and another in colour by Stephen Shore. A book you should have.

This was on my son's Amazon wish list and he was pleased to receive it recently. Unfortunately there were one or two coloured marks on the white pages of text, like printing smudges? - however, he says that this does tend to happen (in his experience) with photography books.
