Fred Herzog was born in 1930 in Germany and moved to Vancouver in 1953. After a three-year stint as a sea man, he begin working as a medical photographer, while still finding time to hone his art, choosing colour film as a way to capture urban vitality. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Herzog taught in the fine arts departments at the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University. He has participated in major exhibitions in Canada-including at the National Gallery of Canada, Presentation House Gallery, Vancouver Art Gallery and UBC Fine Arts Gallery --and around the world, from the Laurence Miller Gallery in New York to the C/O Berlin in Germany.

Douglas Coupland was born on a Canadian NATO base in Germany and raised in Vancouver, where he still resides. Among his best-selling novels are Generation X, Microserfs, and Miss Wyoming. Coupland also exhibits his sculpture in galleries around the world, indulging in design experiments that include everything from launching collections of furniture to futurological consulting for Stephen Spielberg.

Sarah Milroy, former editor of Canadian Art magazine, is an art critic who has written for journals, magazines and newspapers, including the National Post and the Globe and Mail. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.

Claudia Gochmann is an art historian and writer based in Berlin. She has written for Photography Now and is the co-author of ArchitekTour: Usedom.

Jeff Wall is best known for his large-scale back-lit cibachrome photographs and art-historical writing. He has exhibited around the world, including at the MoMA and the Tate Modern.
Presents photographs of urban Vancouver taken during the 1950s and 1960s in color rather than the black-and-white hues used by other photographers at the time, along with essays that discuss his life and artistic style.
