The definitive book about the stunning oeuvre of a pioneer of colour photography -- Vancouver's Fred Herzog. For more than five decades, Fred Herzoghas focused his lens on street life, and his striking colour photographs -- of vacant lots, second-hand shops, neon signs and working-class people -- evoke nostalgia in an older generation and inspire wide-eyed revelation in a younger one. The images that we now consider iconic once relegated Herzogto the margins: his bold use of colour was unusual in the 1950s and '60s, a time when art photography was almost exclusively associated with black-and-white imagery. Fred Herzoghas worked with Kodachrome slide film for over 50 years, but only in the past few years has technology allowed him to make archival pigment photographic prints of exceptional colour and intensity. Fred Herzog: Photographsshowcases this innovative artist's impressive collection in a beautifully crafted volume. Providing authoritative texts are four titans of the art community: Claudia Gochmann's introduction anchors Fred Herzog's place in the history of photography, Sarah Milroyshares a conversation with Herzog, Douglas Couplandcomments on what Herzog's colour photos reveal about Vancouver and Jeff Wallfocuses his photographer's eye on a single Fred Herzogimage.
