About

14 x 20 inch archival inkjet print. Edition 20. Signed, titled, dated and editioned on verso. Canadian photographer Fred Herzog has been photographing in Vancouver since 1953, making images awash with vibrant color. They are complex, mysterious, exuberant, and full of life, much like the city he photographed. But although he has been photographing for decades, his images were only brought to a larger public view in 2007, when his work was featured in a major retrospective at the Vancouver Art Gallery. That exhibition was a revelation to those who had previously known his work only through slides, as well as to a generation of art lovers who were completely unaware of his work. Fred Herzog was born in Stuttgart, Germany, in 1930, and emigrated to Vancouver in 1952. There he worked as a medical photographer by day, and on evenings and weekends he took to the streets with his camera, documenting daily life as he observed it. Focusing his camera on storefronts, neon signs, billboards, cafes, and crowds of people, he eloquently depicts the architecture of the street as a framework for human interaction, presenting a view of the city that is both critical and elegiac. Herzog’s work in color was unusual in the 1950’s and 1960’s, when most fine art photographers were working only with black and white imagery. His use of Kodachrome color slide film, however, limited his ability to make exhibition-quality prints. In recent years, newer digital inkjet printing processes have finally enabled him to print and exhibit this important body of early street photography. In addition to the Vancouver Art Gallery, Herzog’s work has also been represented in one-person shows at the Glenbow Museum in Calgary; the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art in Toronto; the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa; the C/O Berlin Foundation in Berlin; and the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris. Most recently, he was included in the expansive exhibition “Eyes Wide Open: 100 Years of Leica Photography,” at the Haus der Fotografie/Deichterhallen in Hamburg; from there, the show will travel to venues in Frankfurt, Berlin, Vienna and Munich. His photographs are in the collections of many Canadian museums, as well as in many major corporate or private collections, including Microsoft, Yahoo, Pier 24 (San Francisco), and the Martin Margulies collection (Miami).
