Citizens of the Twentieth Century: Portrait Photographs 1892-1952. Photographs by August Sander. Edited by Gunther Sander. Introduction by Ulrich Keller. Second printing. Small folio. Hardbound in library protected dust jacket. 431 duotone plates. M.I.T. Press, Cambridge, 1986. 512 pp.
First published in Germany by Schirmer/Mosel, this landmark book reproduces, in duotone, 431 of August Sander's great portraits of Germans taken during the first half of the twentieth century. The photographs are divided into seven sections: farmers, workers, women, occupations, artists, the big city, and "the last people." This remarkable body of work was left incomplete upon Sander's death. Ulrich Keller and the photographer's son, Gunther Sander, have undertaken this reconstruction using Sander's notes and negatives. An artistic and documentary triumph of unprecedented proportion!
