GLIMPSE OF THE PAST

Fred Her­zog was born in Stuttgart, Ger­many, in 1930 and im­mi­grated to Canada in 1952.

He is best known as a pho­tog­ra­pher who doc­u­mented the street life of work­ing-class peo­ple in Van­cou­ver. He worked pri­mar­ily with colour slide film, which lim­ited his abil­ity to ex­hibit and also marginal­ized him some­what as an artist in the ’50s and ’60s, when most pho­tos in vogue were in black and white.

How­ever, his work has been in­creas­ingly rec­og­nized in re­cent years, with his pho­tos ap­pear­ing in numer­ous books and gal­leries, in­clud­ing the Glen­bow Mu­seum. An ex­hi­bi­tion of his work is cur­rently at the Glen­bow un­til April 28.
