Book Description

31 Oct 2011
The definitive book about the stunning oeuvre of a pioneer of colour photography. This is the only book to address the entirety of Fred Herzog s oeuvre. In recent years, as advancements in technology have made it possible to effectively scan and reproduce Herzog s work to his exacting standards, critics around the world have discovered him. In recent years, he has been the subject of solo exhibitions in Berlin, New York and Paris. Herzog shot in colour at a time when serious photography was only black & white his contribution to the development of colour photography is only now beginning to be understood. Herzog himself supervises all scans, and no photograph is reprinted without it meeting his approval. Paired with the authoritative essays of Jeff Wall, Sarah Milroy, Douglas Coupland and Claudia Gochmann, this is truly a collector s volume. In 2010, a major German-language catalogue of Herzog s work was published by Hatje Cantz.

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprising discovery 10 Jun 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much appreciated 26 Dec 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.
