The amazing work of Fred H

Fred Herzog immigrated from Germany to Canada in ’52. Fred hooked up with a medical photographer called Marincowitz and taught himself how to take a picture. Camera in hand, he travelled from Vancouver to San Francisco. 

Fred captured street life in the 1950s and 60s. ‘He used colour, to get over the way he saw the city and the way he wanted others to see it.’

I love his work. No agenda or bullshit.

Simply the  streets, everyday people.

What he gives us is...


in the ordinary.
