FRED HERZOG: MAN with bandage, PHOTOGRAPHY (1968) © FRED HERZOG
I totally agree, its a fantastic picture. The nonchalant attitude of the bandaged man, the ghostlike look of the old lady, and again – notice Herzog’s amazing use of colour … leading us into the picture, adding a kind of visual depth and body to the image.
