Inhaltsangabe: In 1918, August Sander meticulously photographed the defeated citizenry of Germany who needed photo identification cards for the occupying forces. By 1929 he had photographed all classes and types of people. During this time, Sander came under the influence of modern art and its intellectual practitioners whom he befriended in Cologne. Through his discussions with them he came to understand the importance of his portrait work and was encouraged to continue. He produced the first volume of an extended series he hoped would provide an exhaustive catalogue, but in the 1930s his work fell into disfavor and was banned by the Nazis. The photography of August Sander comprises an extraordinary human document. This volume of the Masters of Photography series, which includes 43 portraits of a cross section of German society, from pastry chefs to industrialists, is a provocative glance at the Weimar Republic.
About the Author:
born in 1876 in Herdorf Sieg, Germany, August Sander began his portrait work in the early 1890s. In 1904 he opened a portrait studio in Linz, but many of his images were made in the homes and places of employment of his sisters. His book Antlitz der Zeit (Face of the Time, 1929) was the first volume of a proposed extended portrait series. But his photography was driven from the market place by the Gestapo and the printing plates were destroyed. Seeking refuge from the storms of war, sander retreated to Westerwald. Slowly recognition of his achievements came his way in the form of state and international honors. He died in 1964 at age eighty-eight in Cologne.
