Acclaimed photographer, Fred Herzog is known primarily for his photos of life in Vancouver. His work focuses primarily on “ordinary” people, the working class, and their connections to the city around them. Within his images, bodily gesture, the decomposition of consumer culture and the architecture of the street take on a heightened resonance, as the impact of modernity becomes visible in the everyday life of the city.
