This is the only book to address the entirety of Fred Herzog's oeuvre. In recent years, as advancements in technology have made it possible to effectively scan and reproduce Herzog's work to his exacting standards, critics around the world have discovered him. In recent years, he has been the subject of solo exhibitions in Berlin, New York and Paris. Herzog shot in colour at a time when "serious" photography was only black & white - his contribution to the development of colour photography is only now beginning to be understood. Herzog himself supervises all scans, and no photograph is reprinted without it meeting his approval. Paired with the authoritative essays of Jeff Wall, Sarah Milroy, Douglas Coupland and Claudia Gochmann, this is truly a collector's volume. In 2010, a major German-language catalogue of Herzog's work was published by Hatje Cantz.
