Fred Herzog, C/O berlin

F R E D    H E R Z O G
Great surprise must admit. Never had heard the name of this photographer before. FRED HERZOG. Born in Stuttgart, he then moved shorty to Toronto, and then to Vancouver where he developed his career during 1950s and 60s.

He mostly used colour revesal film (Kodachome) to capture his works. This limited himself due to the existing popularity in Black and White technique at that time. He decided to capture the streets, gas stations and shops from Vancouver so that afterwards people could see what the city was like in the 60s. But what he loved was capturing people, mostly working class, in its environment and daily life. And in the streets of Vancouver.

His works are full of colour, power and authenticity.

Have a look at his portfolio at the Equinox Gallery in Vancouver:
