Fred Herzog - Modern Color


Hatje Cantz 2016

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