Fred Herzog: Modern Color

Fred Herzog became best known for his unusual use of colour in the 1950s and 1960s, a time when art photography was almost exclusively associated with black-and-white images. For more than 50 years, the Canadian photographer worked almost exclusively with Kodachrome slide films, and it was only in the past decade that technological advances enabled him to produce archival pigment prints that match the extraordinary colours and intensity of Kodachrome slides. In this respect, his photographs can be considered a prototype for the New Colour photographers of the 1970s. This monograph brings together more than 230 photographs, the majority of which have never been reproduced before, and also includes contributions by celebrated authors such as David Campany and Hans-Michael Koetzle. Fred Herzog is the most comprehensive publication to date on the work of this important photographer.
