About this title:

Synopsis: A landmark in the history of photography, Citizens of the Twentieth Century completes August Sander's most important and sustained photographic enterprise, an "archive" of twentieth-century man. These emphatically objective photographs from the years of the Kaisers, the Weimar Republic, the Nazi regime, and the early Federal Republic make up an unprecedented document of both the individual and the collective recent history of the Germans.

Sander had intended to create a rank ordered portrait collection of the German people, an ambitious undertaking which remained incomplete at the time of his death. This reconstruction by Ulrich Keller, professor of art history at the University of California at Santa Barbara, in collaboration with Gunther Sander, the photographer's son, has been compiled from Sander's notes and negatives.

Keller's introductory essay discusses the development of Sander's photographic aesthetic, his studio practices, his notions of class structure, his technical virtuosity, and his approach to portraiture. The 431 photographs following Keller's text are presented in 45 portfolios each divided into seven sections on farmers, workers, women, occupations, artists, the big city, and the last people.

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.
