Format: Hardcover
What a wonderful selection of photos. The majority of the ninety-two images are of Vancouver in the sixties though the last photo in the book was taken in 1984. It's the color in these photos that fascinated me. Herzog used Kodachrome slide film and the colors have a warmth and maturity that definitely adds to their beauty, especially the incredibly vibrant reds. The only other photo book I've seen with this richness of colour is Bound for Glory: America in Color 1939-43 with work from the well known FSA/OWI photographers.

Herzog was experimenting with color long before it became accepted, in the mid-seventies, as a serious photographic form (interestingly the book's first pages have five lovely black and whites). The Vancouver color photos are all street scenes showing everyday life with traffic, shoppers, sides of buildings, and lots of signs. He says that the work of Walker Evans influenced him especially the 'American photographs' book and of course Robert Frank. There are many shots that are saturated with signage typography and Vancouver did a nice line in gigantic upright neon signs spelling out the name of movie houses, a sort of electronic Day-Glo.

Besides the photos there is an illustrated essay in the front of the book and a conversation between Stephen Waddell with Herzog in the back pages, these are in German and English. This is a five star book regarding the contents (and printed with a 200 screen) but I was disappointed that it wasn't a landscape size photo book. Putting these great photos into a book a bit bigger than eight by seven inches seems a mistake.

This book is full of color photographs that make you feel as if you are walking down the sidewalk in the 1950's. Fred Herzog's framing is truly brilliant. I highly and absolutely recommend this book.

Roughly 80% of the photographs in this book are also included in the Douglas & McIntyre book.

Herzog is a true master of color photography. The book is pretty good with a real good sample of his work. I just wished the book was a bit larger so I could see the photos with more details. But worth buying.

This book was a great introduction to Fred Herzog's work. A small size hardcover book containing a lot of Herzog's simple but beautiful photographs. It's great to see such rich colorful work from the time period.
