Do they have Polar Bears in Argentina, how much is Kev’s vet’s bill, what is a shutterless camera lifespan, should you have a ‘scaffold in pictures’ contract clause, can you future proof a photo business for another pandemic and why do people humble brag? We imagine a world without film, talk about travel and backups, dream of a BW sensor and discuss how the new larger sensor size may affect lens purchases. The book of the week is Fred Herzog’s Modern Color and Darren Goldstein returns to talk about stills unit photography.

Book of the week is Modern Color Fred Herzog
Fred Herzog is known for his unusual use of colour in the fifties and sixties, a time when art photography was almost exclusively associated with black and white imagery. The Canadian photographer worked almost exclusively with Kodachrome slide film for over 50 years, and only in the past decade has technology allowed him to make archival pigment prints that match the exceptional color and intensity of the Kodachrome slide. In this respect, his photographs can be seen as a pre-figuration of the New Color photographers of the seventies.This book will bring together over 230 images, many never before reproduced, and will feature essays by acclaimed authors David Campany and Hans-Michael Koetzle. Fred Herzog will be the most comprehensive publication on this important photographer to date.
