Fred Herzog: Modern Color

Text by David Campany, Hans-Michael Koetzle, Jeff Wall.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Fred Herzog: Modern Color.'The most comprehensive book yet published on the Canadian color-photography pioneer
Fred Herzog is best known for his unusual use of color photography in the 1950s and 1960s, a time when art photography was almost exclusively associated with black-and-white imagery. In this respect, his photographs can be seen as prefiguring the New Color photographers of the 1970s. The Canadian photographer worked largely with Kodachrome slide film for over 50 years, and only in the past decade has technology allowed him to make archival pigment prints that match the exceptional color and intensity of the Kodachrome slide, making this an excellent time to reevaluate and reexamine his work.
This book brings together over 230 images, many never before reproduced, and features essays by acclaimed authors David Campany, Hans-Michael Koetzle and artist Jeff Wall. Fred Herzog is the most comprehensive publication on this important photographer to date.
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.

Engagingly seedy and colorful: Fred Herzog's Vancouver

Engagingly seedy and colorful: Fred Herzog's Vancouver

Fred Herzog left Germany as a young man in 1952. His mother had died in 1941; his father died right after the war. He worked odd jobs in Toronto before moving to Vancouver to be a medical photographer at St. Paul's Hospital. There, he began to shoot with a Leica 35mm camera, the better to capture the "engagingly seedy and colorful" city that would become his subject for the rest of his life. "He surveyed the streets, alleyways, storefronts, signs, empty lots, backyards, the waterfront, and the people," David Campany writes. "It is not the 'positive view' preferred by civic officials; neither is it negative. It is the measured, attentive, and ultimately generous view of a mindful observer. Few other bodies of photography in the history of the medium have come close to the richness of Herzog's extended city portrait." continue to blog
