Product description

About the Author

Fred Herzog (born 1930 in Germany) arrived in Vancouver in 1953. Professionally employed as a medical photographer, he spent his evenings and weekends photographing the city and its inhabitants in vibrant color. Though he has been working prolifically since the 1950s, Herzog was relatively unknown until a major retrospective at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 2007 brought his work to a wider public. Digital inkjet printing has enabled Herzog to finally satisfactorily make prints from his slides and exhibit his important early color street photography.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine collection of a notable modern photographer 20 Mar. 2017
By Ron Himebaugh - Published on
Verified Purchase
This is a well designed, nicely bound, well- printed compendium of Herzog's lovely color pictures, mostly of his hometown, Vancouver, BC. Still active, Herzog shot most of these in the sixties and seventies, but there are fine pictures right into the new millennium.
This is masterful color work, quiet, unassuming; extraordinary pictures of ordinary daily life, shot as I understand, for personal pleasure rather than professional practice.
I usually just skim the verbiage in a photo book as it is extraneous to the work itself, and is not as a rule helpful for me to know what I am looking at. But the accompanying essays--there are three-- in Modern Color are actually pertinent and informative.
This is a well conceived, excellently presented package of visual joy; highly recommended.
