Fred Herzog - photographer

Just read an article about photographer Fred Herzog in the Vancouver Sun, "Success Comes Late In Life for City Photographer."

Herzog took Kodachrome slides of Vancouver and other cities for 50 years. He spent his life savings of $120,000 (CD) to have them printed. He's now 86.

60 Herzog photos and Herzog on his philosophy of photography.

I find his Vancouver photographs deeply unsettling. I'd love to see some of his Paris photographs.
