Black and White

Fred Herzog
Black and White

Black and White is an exhibition celebrating Fred Herzog’s interest and affection for the city of Vancouver. Comprised of rarely seen black and white archival pigment prints, this exhibition is a rich and extended portrait of a city. A resident of Vancouver for over five decades, Fred Herzog worked downtown at St. Paul’s Hospital, and lived in the West End (later moving to the west side of the city). His walking tours regularly took him to the east side of the city where he was particularly attuned to Chinatown, Strathcona, the West End, and the working waterfronts. These areas sustained his interest for over 50 years.

of Time and Place

Fred Herzog
of Time and Place

No other artist has chronicled Vancouver’s urban life as comprehensively and with such sustained insight as Herzog. He purchased his first camera in Germany at the age of 21, a Kodak Retina 1, which he knew about from his father who worked at Kodak during the war. Some of Herzog’s earliest photographs in Vancouver were taken on the Retina 1, but this model had a slow lens speed and did not contain a rangefinder and consequently, he favoured using the Lecia C for street photography as it was small and pocketable. He used different lenses while working in low light and crowded locations, all the while producing images that achieve a rare balance of composition and spontaneity. Bringing together early black and white images from the artist’s archive and his pioneering colour street photography, of Time and Place celebrates Fred Herzog’s understanding of the medium combined with the ability of photography to show “how you see and how you think”.

Paying Attention
at the Fairmont Pacific Rim

Paying Attention
at the Fairmont Pacific Rim

With works by
Berenice Abbott
William Eggleston
Walker Evans
Fred Herzog
Geoffrey James
Vivian Maier
George Tice
In collaboration with Westbank’s Pacific Gallery at the Fairmont Pacific Rim, Equinox Gallery is pleased to present Paying Attention, a group exhibition featuring the work of Berenice Abbott, William Eggleston, Walker Evans, Fred Herzog, Geoffrey James, Vivian Maier and George Tice. This exhibition looks at photographers whose work articulates fleeting, often overlooked moments in the evolution of their urban environments during periods of rapid growth and transition. Spanning several cities over the past 100 years, these photographers are united in the understanding that what is most familiar in modern life is often what is most impermanent, and its significance may only be felt once it has disappeared.
As wanderers through the city, the photographers in this exhibition utilize varying aesthetic strategies to present an alchemy of past, present, and future within a single image. From Berenice Abbott’s striking architectural images of New York City in the 1930s to Fred Herzog’s early colour scenes of a growing Vancouver on the precipice of modernity in the 1950s, the photographers in Paying Attention each explore the large and small ways our environments are shaped and reshaped over time.
Presented by Equinox Gallery for the Capture Photography Festival, Vancouver.

East Vancouver

Fred Herzog
East Vancouver

Fred Herzog: East Vancouver is focused on Herzog’s photographs of the east side of Vancouver. After emigrating to Canada in the early 1950s, Herzog began photographing Vancouver’s streets on regular walking excursions. While he lived and worked in the West End and the west side of the city, Herzog was particularly attuned to Chinatown, Strathcona, and what is now known as the Downtown Eastside, three neighbourhoods that sustained his interest for over 50 years. His use of colour was unusual in the 1950s and 60s, a time when art photography was almost exclusively associated with black and white, and it is through this use of colour film that Herzog developed a sensitive and thoughtful visual compendium of parts of the city.
This exhibition is presented as part of Capture Photography Festival.

A Life in Pictures

Fred Herzog
A Life in Pictures

Equinox Gallery is pleased to present Fred Herzog: A Life in Pictures, an exhibition of vintage photographs and cameras from the artist’s personal archive. Bringing together early black and white images developed in the artist’s personal darkroom, never before seen images from the artist’s time at St. Paul’s and his pioneering colour street photography, this exhibition celebrates Herzog’s understanding of the medium combined with, as he put it, “how you see and how you think” created the right moment to take a picture.

Primary Colour

Primary Colour

Primary Colour is a view of early colour street photography from 1950 to 1983 with works by Fred Herzog, Vivian Maier, Gordon Parks, Helen Levitt, Harry Callahan, Ernst Haas, Saul Leiter, Joel Meyerowitz, and William Eggleston. Each of the photographers included in this exhibition have adopted and adapted the ethos of the flâneur as a wandering observer of the events of urban life. Compelled by the challenge to use colour film in their desire to observe and capture in the very same moment, the candid and striking nature of these photographs blurs the boundary between artistic expression and documentary record.
