Fred Herzog

December 2, 2010

I was at the Renfrew Public Library last night doing some good ol’ fashioned research and I found a great deal of local publications on Vancouver’s history. I got so involved that when the nice lady announced it was closing time, I had gone through a stack of about a dozen books.

One that I spent a lot of time on was a collection of photographs by a man by the name of Fred Herzog (b. September 21, 1930, Stuttgart, Germany) who has captured amazing stills of life in Vancouver from 1953 right up until now. He is a regular at the Equinox Gallery and has been featured as a solo artist in Toronto, Paris and New York. I honestly just sat there staring at his photos and searching for them on the net for this post really doesn’t do them (or him) justice.

Check some of them out below but please, head down to a VPL on a quiet afternoon and you won’t be disappointed!

Plitvice Waterfalls, Croatia.

Call me ignorant, but I always thought that Croatia was a cold and drab Eastern European country.

HALLOWE’EN!

October 17, 2010

My favourite time of the year is creeping up fast! I’m squeezing in at least one good fright flick a night and watching as many Treehouse of Horror episodes as my non-cable TV can provide me.

Ga Ga Over Raquel

September 22, 2010

Meet Raquel Riskin. Um. Okay. I’m honestly trying to write a piece on her but I just can’t formulate the words tonite. She’s been in that show Whistler and Supernatural. She had a part in that Percy Jackson and the Lightening something movie. Um, she grew up in White Rock. She lives and works in Vancouver now. That includes modeling, acting, singing and dancing. And if she was the editor of this blog, then I would have already been shut down and kicked off the team for being such a pussy.
