Sander conceived this large-scale project, which he ultimately never completed, in the 1920s. We have now condensed out 2002 seven-volume edition of the artist's complete oeuvre into one large volume presenting "the essential" People of the 20th Century.

August Sander is considered to be one of the greatest portrait photographers of the early 20th century. His great photographic work will be celebrated by an exhibition of his most important vintage prints opening on September 7, 2009, at the distinguished Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris. One half of the images are his famous portraits, the other half are his relatively unknown, but very beautiful Rhineland landscapes and nature photographs from the 1930s. The images will be accompanied by a text by August Sander himself his famous radio speech about photography entitled Sehen, Beobachten und Denken (Seeing, Observing, Thinking). The images in the book will be reproduced from rare vintage prints in the highest possible quality. This collection will be the essential small edition of August Sander s photographs for years to come.

Through his portraits of ordinary people 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 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 readers.

Mike Disfarmer is a true American eccentric. Born Mike Meyer, he changed his name to distance himself from both the surrounding farming community of his native Arkansas and from his own kinfolk-claiming that a tornado had accidentally blown him onto the Meyer family farm as a baby. The son of a German-born Union soldier in the heart of the South, Disfarmer was an agnostic from Lutheran stock among the church-going Baptists and Methodists, and remained a confirmed bachelor in a community of large families. Despite his outsider status, as the resident studio photographer in the tiny town of Heber Springs from 1917 ;1956, Disfarmer was the ultimate insider, privy to each family's rites of passage-from first birthdays to high-school graduations, from engagements to anniversaries, from army furloughs to funerals. His studio portraits present the people of the heartland during the turbulent times of the early twentieth century. Disfarmer documented the farm families as they sent their sons to fight World War I, struggled through the Great Depression and returned to battle for World War II. His career concludes with the optimistic 1950s, as his previously somber camera joyfully captures the pairings of bobby-soxed young women and their James Dean ;wannabe boyfriends. Previously, Disfarmer's work was known only from a cache of glass-plate negatives that had been salvaged from his studio after his death and spanned a fifth of his forty-year career. The culmination of an unprecedented two-year historical reclamation project in which a dedicated team of researchers scoured every family album in every home along every dirt road in Cleburne Count, Disfarmer: The Vintage Prints presents the never-before-seen original vintage prints of the enigmatic photographer throughout his career.

Hans Eijkelboom: People of the Twenty‐First Century is an enormous and completely fascinating collection of "anti‐sartorial" photographs of street life by the Dutch conceptual artist/street photographer. From Amsterdam to New York and Paris to Shanghai, these photographs, taken over a period of more than twenty years, provide a cumulative portrait of the people of the twenty‐first century. A magnetic panoply of images, this cult object has a place in the library of every photography book collector as well as anyone interested in contemporary culture. Democratic, apolitical and unique, the archive of thousands of images offers an engrossing and engaging cross-section of society. Over the course of the last two decades, the Dutch photographer worked methodically on his monumental Photo Notes project: First he would select a busy pedestrian area – his favorite spots were often near shopping centers – where he would stay for 30 minutes up to a few hours. He then spent time observing passers-by before recognizing a common type, normally based on a garment, sometimes a behavior: people in band T‐shirts, fur caps or beige trench coats; young couples walking arm in arm; women in suit dresses; men with gelled hair or pushing shopping trolleys. . . He snapped them with a camera hung around his neck, attached to a trigger in his pocket. Back in the studio, the images were laid into grids called Photo Notes. Their simplicity of form and presentation belies their complex anthropological, social and artistic commentary.

This catalogue focuses on the great aesthetic innovations that were made by artists throughout Germany in painting, sculpture, graphic art, photography, film and the decorative arts in the years from 1910 to 1937. The inter-related, fluctuating nature of modernist movements such as Expressionism, Dada, Constructivism, Bauhaus and New Objectivity are emphasized as is the broader historical context in which the works were produced. The works chosen reflect the fascinating and complex ways in which artists responded to the forces of modernity and their passionate engagement with contemporary society, culture and politics.
