Modern Colour presents a selection of new photographs by acclaimed street photographer Fred Herzog. Herzog has been taking street photographs in colour since 1953, creating an extensive body of early colour street photography unmatched elsewhere. In the words of photography critic David Campany: “Few other bodies of photography in the history of the medium have come close to the richness of Herzog’s extended city portrait.” Nearly all of Herzog’s work was produced using Kodachrome, a colour slide film notoriously difficult to work with in a spontaneous fashion. As a result, he remained virtually unknown as a photographer until 2005, when printing technology allowed him to make archival pigment prints that matched the exceptional colour and intensity of the original Kodachrome slides.
