Featuring 60 subjects from August Sander's People of the 20th Century along with another 100 brilliant images from his large-scale project, this book presents a selection of the most stunning images from the photographer's monumental work. August Sander is one of the greatest photographers in international photographic history. With his seminal book People of the 20th Century, he set new standards in portrait photography. Sander's aspiration was to create a typological "composite image" of his time. The ambitious project began in the 1910s and was to occupy him through the 1950s. A novel feature of this book is that all the reproductions are based on vintage prints produced and authorized by August Sander himself. The croppings and the desired tonal values are authentically rendered here for the first time in the long publication history of Sander's brilliant portrait work. The originals are from the rich holdings of the Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur in Cologne and from additional major collections such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, and the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich.

Richard Powers arbeitete als Programmierer in den Docks von Boston. Während der Nachtschicht las er Thomas Manns »Zauberberg«. Als er im Museum die berühmte Fotografie des Kölner August Sanders von drei jungen Männer aus dem Jahr 1914 entdeckt, denkt er, dem Jahrhundert in die Augen zu schauen. Der Erzähler Richard Powers war geboren. Der Held in Powers Geschichte ist ebenso von Sanders Fotografie in Bann gezogen. Fieberhaft recherchiert er die Hintergründe der Bildes, bis die drei Bauern aus dem Westerwald ihre Lebensgeschichten erzählen: vom Verschwinden und vom Überleben im Ersten Weltkrieg, und von der fast unmöglichen Wende zum Glück, als sich der Weg des einen mit der Biographie von Henry Ford, dem großen Erfinder und Autobauer, kreuzt.

With People of the 20th Century, August Sander created a monumental work that is unique in the history of photography and a classic of photographic literature. 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.

Buzz Windrip, für seine Gegner ein „ungebildeter Lügner mit idiotischer Weltanschauung“ und ein gefährlicher Populist, will Präsidentschaftskandidat werden. Er gibt vor, sich für die kleinen Leute einzusetzen, und verspricht, „aus Amerika wieder ein stolzes Land zu machen“. Trotz völlig unglaubwürdiger Versprechen laufen ihm die Wähler zu, und er zieht ins Weiße Haus ein. Sogleich regiert er wie ein absolutistischer Herrscher, beschneidet die Freiheiten der Minderheiten, legt sich mit Mexiko an und lässt seine Kritiker rabiat verfolgen. Einer davon ist der liberale Zeitungsherausgeber Doremus Jessup, der sich nicht mundtot machen lassen will. Sinclair Lewis wusste durch seine Frau Dorothy Thompson, Auslandskorrespondentin in Berlin, über den Aufstieg der Nazis Bescheid. In den USA beobachtete er, wie die Populisten nach Wirtschaftskrise und Sozialreformen des New Deal immer weiter an Einfluss gewannen. Der radikale Senator Huey Long versuchte Präsident Roosevelt aus dem Amt zu drängen, bevor Long 1935 einem Attentat zum Opfer fiel. Lewis diente er als Vorbild für den fanatischen Verführer Buzz Windrip in seinem Roman. Lewis’ Roman aus dem Jahr 1935 führt einen Antihelden vor, der mit seinen Hetzreden die Begeisterung unzufriedener Wähler entfacht. Durch seine Lügen und eine Rhetorik des Populismus und der Ressentiments wird er Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten. Das klingt vertraut? 1935 in den USA ein aufsehenerregender Bestseller, heute wieder eine Sensation und aktuell wie selten zuvor. In der Übersetzung des bekannten Exilautors und Kleist-Preis-Trägers Hans Meisel – mit einem Nachwort von Jan Brandt. „Eine unheimliche Vorwegnahme der aktuellen Ereignisse.“ The Guardian. „Ein Populist im Weißen Haus? Literaturnobelpreisträger Sinclair Lewis hat es vor 80 Jahren durchgespielt.“ DIE ZEIT. „Sinclair Lewis ist wieder aktuell.“ der Freitag. „Ein Meister des absoluten Realismus." Bob Dylan.

August Sander (1876-1964) devoted his life to the photographic documentation of the German people and their lives. Not only are his portraits exemplary in the way he captures the reality of his subjects, but they also function as a great anthropological work - a description of a place and time through the faces of those who posed for him. He created a definitive collection of photographs grandly entitled 'Citizens of the Twentieth Century', containing a portrait of an entire society, its structures and ways of living. His work, along with that of Karl Blossfeldt and Albert Renger-Patzsch, was pioneering in Germany, it redefined the medium as an autonomous technical and artistic form, and brought about a fundamental change in the perception of photography.
