I managed to find an old (and somewhat tattered) copy of the famous August Sander Du magazine from 1959 (99 cents on Ebay! if you’re wondering about some of the odd colours of the image above, that’s mostly me taking a quick photo of the magazine). Looking through the magazine I realized yet again the genius behind those portraits, it’s quite amazing. I think I personally need to see contemporary work being put into perspective, I need to see older work, to make connections, and to be able to appreciate both that older work (for what it achieved already) and the new work (for what it built on the older foundations).
