Looking Back - Fred Herzog

Born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1930 and emigrated to Canada in 1952, he lived briefly in Toronto and Montreal before moving to Vancouver in 1953. Since childhood he casually had an interest in photography but it was not until arriving in Canada that he began to take it seriously. He focused primarily on "ordinary" people, the working class and their connections to the city around them. As he captures the character and heart of the people, so he also captures the haunting loneliness of the urban landscape.
