Fred Herzog is known for his distinctive approach to color photography in the 1950s and 1960s, a time when the art form was almost solely represented by black and white imagery. For over fifty years, the Canadian photographer exclusively used Kodachrome slide film, and only in the last decade have advances in technology enabled the production of archival pigment prints that faithfully match the remarkable color and vibrancy of the Kodachrome slides.
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. Fred Herzog is the ultimate publication on the renowned photographer to date.
