August Sander: Citizens of the Twentieth Century.
Portrait Photographs, 1892-1952.
Photographs by August Sander. Edited by Gunther Sander. Introduction by Ulrich Keller.
MIT Press, Cambridge, 1986. 512 pp., 9x11½".
Now back in print! First published several years ago 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!
