About German-canadian photographer, Fred HERZOG (1930-2019)

Growing up in Stuttgart, Germany, Fred HERZOG emigrated to Canada in 1952 and spent some time in Toronto and Montreal before settling in Vancouver in 1953. He worked as a medical photographer at St. Paul's Hospital and took photographs in his spare time. In the 1960s and 1970s, he taught in the Fine Arts Departments at the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University. It wasn't until digital pigment printing processes enabled him to reproduce the color intensity of Kodachrome slides taken with his Leica in the early 2000s. His pioneering work in color photography came to prominence with his first major solo exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 2007 and gained wide international recognition. His photographs are part of numerous private and public collections, including the Vancouver Art Gallery and the National Gallery of Canada. He has participated in exhibitions in North America: National Gallery of Canada, Presentation House Gallery, Vancouver Art Gallery and UBC Fine Arts Gallery (now Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery) - as well as worldwide: Laurence Miller Gallery, New York and C/O Berlin in Germany.
