August Sander was one of the most important German portrait photographers of the early twentieth century. In 1904 he opened his own studio in Linz, Austria, where he met with success. He began to photograph the rural farmers nearby, and soon abandoned his urban studio in favor of photographing in the field, finding subjects along the roads he traveled by bicycle. Sander photographed subjects from all walks of life and created a typological catalog of the German people. Although the Nazis banned the portraits in the 1930s and destroyed many of his negatives, Sander continued to make his photographs. His efforts grew into an ambitious social-documentary project he entitled People of the 20th Century, eventually encompassing more than 600 photographs divided into 45 portfolios.
