Book - Face of Our Time, Alfred Döblin

When I visited the Tate Modern the other week, I brought this book in their shop and think that it was worth so much more than the six odd pounds I spent on it. Why? Well I find August Sanders study on class, society and cultural differences through the art of portrait photography fascinating and beautiful. This book brings all those qualities that Sander has and presents to you a fantastic set of photographs that look at the world in the early 2oth century. This is a book is for anyone who is an August Sander fan, loves portrait photography or wants an insight into history, and even if you are not, you should still have a look. The photographs are just incredible and something you should not miss out on.
