Fred Herzog occupies an important place in the history of Street Photography, and Geoff Dyer suggests in the New York Times Magazine that “Man with Bandage” might justifiably be called Herzog’s signature shot. It is a great example of Herzog’s technique of not staging his shots, but capturing the right moment by shooting in a split second. This work was shot from the hip, for the motion of raising the camera to the eye would have caught the awareness of the subjects, and the moment would have been lost.
