Biography:
August Sander began working with the medium while serving in the military and working in a photographic studio in Trier. After two years of working in other studios, he opened his own successful studio in Linz, Austria in 1904. Five years later, Sander moved to a suburb of Cologne and began producing images of rural life. He devoted himself to his lifelong project, “Man of the Twentieth Century,” which documented the inhabitants of his native area of Westerwald. He produced an anthology of over six hundred portraits of German citizens. Despite the Nazi ban on his work during the 1930’s, Sanders continued to photograph turning to mostly nature and architectural studies
