August Sander by August Sander( Book )

25 editions published between 1977 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 catalog, 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 forty-three portraits of a cross section of German society, from pastry chefs to industrialists, is a provocative glance at the Weimar Republic

Emblems of the passing world : poems after photographs by August Sander by Adam Kirsch( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"August Sander's photographic portraits of ordinary people in Weimar Germany inspire this uncanny new collection of poems by one of America's most celebrated writers and critics Through his portraits of ordinary people--soldiers, housewives, children, peasants, and city dwellers--August Sander, the German photographer whose work chronicled the extreme tensions and transitions of the twentieth century, captured a moment in history whose consequences he himself couldn't have predicted. Using these photographs as a lens, Adam Kirsch's poems connect the legacy of the First World War with the turmoil of the Weimar Republic with moving immediacy and meditative insight, and foreshadow the Nazi era. Kirsch writes both urgently and poignantly about these photographs, creating a unique dialogue of word and image that will speak to all readers interested in history, past and present"--
Menschen des 20. Jahrhunderts : ein Kulturwerk in Lichtbildern eingeteilt in sieben Gruppen = People of the 20th century : a cultural work of photographs divided into seven groups = Hommes du XXe siècle : une œuvre culturelle de photograhies divisée en sept groupes by August Sander( Book )

Sander's photographs are deeply psychological, as if the artist simultaneously captured the social role people were eager to present to his camera, and also the unique personality behind the role. A voracious reader, Sander was familiar with the works of Goethe, Schiller, Schopenhauer, Neitzsche, Rilke, and Thomas Mann. He did not embrace a particular ideology or philosophy but valued Wahrheit, (truth). His fascination with the natural world -- people, plants, clouds, geology, herbs and animals -- heightened his awareness of group similarities and common types of appearances. He believed that knowledge of patterns and types would increase an understanding of reality. Sander conceived his idea for "Citizens of the Twentieth Century" as early as 1910, but it wasn't until the end of World War I that the forty-two year old photographer was ready to begin his project. The scope of Sander's photographic vision was immense and unlike anything ever attempted in the history of photography. He intended to produce a body of portrait photographs documenting the entire social strata of Germany, for he believed (along with other like minded artists of his era) that art should reveal the structure of a society. Sander photographed German citizens from all classes and walks of life. Rich, poor, men, women, revolutionaries, artists, tramps, professionals, children, laborers, Communists, Social Democrats, Anglo Saxons, Gypsies, and Negroes stood or sat squarely in front of his camera, fully conscious of the photographer's intention and of their own role in society. Sander photographed his subjects in flat light, making no attempt to flatter them, and then printed the unretouched photographs on glossy paper in order to reveal every detail. "It is not my intention either to criticize or to describe these people, but to create a piece of history with my pictures," he wrote
