I was at his show in Vancouver before winter olympics. Probably most impressive color photogaphy I have seen, followed by later VM color photography with LTM Leica.
But I haven't seen other two big names for color yet. I have seen Meyerowitz LF color and Red book and wasn't impressed.
I think FH deserves to have his book purchased.
Even I was able to afford it not so long time ago.
And here is video with him talking about his pictures and in this episode he talks about some cameras he used :
I remember how some clueless person wrote (in the book, if I'm not mistaken) about him using Leica and went through typical Leica glorifying passage. I laughed because I knew truth about Herzog and Leica.
His bandaid man was taken with Nikkor 21mm (borrowed on this day) on his Nikon SLR...
