Fred Herzog was born in Germany in 1930 and immigrated to Vancouver, Canada, in 1953. Herzog’s use of colour film in the 1950s and ’60s was revolutionary, coming long before colour photography came to be regarded as a serious medium for art or documentary photography. He is now being reconsidered in the history of street photography in relation to Saul Leiter, Helen Levitt, Ernst Haas, Stephen Shore, and others. Herzog’s work can also be seen as a prefiguration of the New Color photographers of the 1970s. Fred Herzog has exhibited at the Vancouver Art Gallery; National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; C/O Berlin; Haus der Photographie, Hamburg; WestLicht, Vienna; Paris Photo; and many others. A fourth monograph with essays by David Campany and Jeff Wall was published by Hatje Cantz in November 2016.
