Photographer of the Month: Fred Herzog

Not long ago I ran across an article that said if you liked Saul Leiter, you would like Fred Herzog even better.  Well, I remain a huge Saul Leiter fan, but this new discovery, Fred Herzog, is right up there.  I can't wait to share this new treasure with you!  Imagine roaming the streets of a fast developing city with a Lieca and kodachrome film. Working with low light challenges, such as shadowy spaces and the fading light of evening and dark interiors, forever fighting for depth-of-field and encountering slow shutter speeds, Herzog shows what magic can be done!  We have selected pictures that emphasize his masterful handling of light, but Herzog's body of work is vast and worth further exploration.
