A few weeks ago I was shopping at a used book store outside of Chicago and came across a book by Fred Herzog titled “Photographs”. I had heard his name before…probably in school….but that's about it, I was pretty oblivous. Well I opened the book and immediately became obsessed with Herzog's work, I feel like I have been missing out all this time. He was one of the first street photographers to push color photo and was one of the grandfathers of color photography, coming even before the esteemed William Eggleston. There is a great article up on American Suburb X of excerpts of some his interviews and they definitely are worth a read.
Hit the jump to scope out some more of his work.
