His work spans portraiture, nature, landscapes, architecture, and street photography, although he is perhaps best-known as a portrait and documentary photographer. This is a beautiful catalog of Sander's portrait photography. The subjects are German people from the years 1892-1952. The portraits contained herein represent pivotal periods in Germany including the time of the Kaisers, the Weimar Republic, the Nazi regime, and the nascent years of the Federal Republic. Much of the catalog are 431 of Sander's portraits with accompanying titles in English, French, Japanese, and Italian. The photos are organized into seven groups, "Farmers", "Workers", "Women", "Occupations", "Artists", "The Big City", and "The Last People."
