Photos of Vancouver

Recommended Posts

I saw an exhibit today of the wonderful photographs of Vancouver by Fred Herzog. Amazing use of color. Then I dug up an online article in the Times...  https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/14/magazine/the-odd-otherwordly-glow-of-fred-herzogs-photography.html

 

He is not a photographer I knew about before. How about you Canadians?

Thanks for the link. Fred Herzog is one of my favourite street photographers. Sadly, the Vancouver that he documented has all but disappeared now, replaced by gleaming towers of cold steel and glass.

 

P.S. He was also one of the pioneers when it came to using colour film -- rather than b&w -- for street photography.

I have seen his work at an exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery.  I loved the way he captured everyday life in Vancouver back then.    As John says, everything is very different now.

Great collection, thanks.  Some interesting photographs from outside Vancouver too.

I have been to Vancouver two years ago, it reminded me of Moscow on sea...

It has some nice places, but overall- a great disappointment.

"Moscow on sea"?

 

That's a new one on me. :wacko:

Never heard that one either.  Perhaps it was rainy season?

That crossed my mind as well, but I've never been to Moscow.

 

Do we have a Kremlin here? :D

Could be the steam clock.  A lot of hot air comes out of it. There's also this cathedral (below), but it's actually Ukrainian.

 

Perhaps "Kiev by the sea" might be a more accurate characterization. B)
