Description

And a lot of English gentlemen did serious and beautiful photography… But I didn’t have time for that. In 1953, decades before William Eggleston and Stephen Shore established color photography as a serious medium for art photography, Fred Herzog shot his first roll of color film. Fred Herzog is the most comprehensive publication on the work of this important photographer to date. It was through focusing on the everyday in the US that Eggleston was able to reveal the deeper truths of the world. In this regard, his photography can be seen as a precursor to the New Color photographers of the 1970s.

This book brings together more than 230 images, many of which have never been reproduced before, and includes essays composed by respected authors David Campany and Hans-Michael Koetzle. Furthermore, his shots were taken using mostly Kodachrome slide film, meaning he was limited in terms of actually getting to exhibit his images in public. This book will bring together over 230 images, many never before reproduced, and will feature essays by acclaimed authors David Campany and Hans-Michael Koetzle. Professionally employed as a medical photographer, he spent his evenings and weekends photographing the city and its inhabitants in vibrant color. Fred Herzog is known for his unusual use of color in the 1950s and 1960s, a time when art photography was almost exclusively associated with black and white imagery.Despite slight shifts in social, cultural and technological parameters, the world now looks much the same as it did in the ’60s and ’70s. In his work, we’re shown a world we recognise, anachronistic as some of it may be, yet we relate to it. Two of Herzog’s big influences were Walker Evans, who documented the effects of the Great Depression in the U.

In this respect, his photographs can be seen as a prototype for the New Color photographers of the 1970s.

The Canadian photographer worked almost exclusively 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. 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. For more than 50 years, the Canadian photographer worked almost exclusively with Kodachrome slide film, and it is only in the past decade that technological advances have enabled him to produce archival pigment prints that match the extraordinary color and intensity of Kodachrome slides. Scenes of society in the macrocosm, rather than showing us nothing, showed us everything: race relations, urban alienation, gender politics and class distinctions.
